SUMMARY

  The Seventy-third Regiment, Illinois Volunteers, was mustered into service at Camp Butler August 21, 1862, under command of Col. J. F. Jaquess, and Company G was largely composed to Schuyler volunteers. Immediately upon organization the regiment was moved to the front and was stationed at Camp Jacques, Ky. Here it was assigned to Sherman's division and remained in it until Sherman was ordered east in the spring of 1864. From the time the regiment left Kentucky up to and subsequent to the movement on Murfreesboro, it lost a number of men by disability and disease, quite a number dying at Bowling Green and many more at Nashville. The brigade, which at Mill Creek had been placed under the command of General Schafer, did not participate in any of the preliminary skirmishing at Stone River. On December 31, however, opportunity was afforded for every regiment to bear a part. General Schafer was killed before noon. Colonel Jaquess was with his regiment at Perryville, so the Seventy-third was commanded by Major William Presson of Rushville. During the day the regiment was in several conflicts and fully established its reputation for bravery.
  During the war the Seventy-third regiment participated in the following engagements: Perryville, Stone River, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge, Resaca, Adairsville, Kenesaw Mountain, Peach Tree Creek, Franklin, Nashville, Pine Mountain, Lost Mountain, New Hope Church, Marietta, Jonesboro, Lovejoy Station, and Spring Hill. The total loss by death was 215 men. The regiment was mustered out of service at Nashville June 12, 1865.
