Historical Memoranda of the 46th Illinois Veteran Volunteer Infantry, from its Organization.

Part First.

The 46th Regiment Illinois Infantry Volunteers, composed of Companies A, B, C, G and K, from Stephenson County, and F from Richland County, rendezvoused at Camp Butler, Illinois, and Companies D, I, H and E from Lee, Ogle and Whiteside counties, rendezvoused at Dixon, Illinois, was organized at Camp Butler, Illinois, on the 28th day of December, 1861, under the command of Col. JOHN A. DAVIS, of Stephenson county, who labored assidiously while the Regiment was in camps of instruction to bring it up to a high state of drill and discipline, with very satisfactory results.

On the 11th day of February, 1862, the Regiment left Camp Butler by rail, via. Decatur, Ill's., arriving at Cairo the morning of the 12th and immediately embarked on the Steamer "Belle Memphis" with orders to proceed up the Cumberland Eiver and report to Gen. GRANT, before Fort Donelson, Tenn. After a very pleasant trip in company with the largest and most magnificent fleet of steamers ever before seen on the Cumberland River, the regiment landed on the west bank of the same on the morrning of the 14th of February, three miles below Fort Donelson. The men were supplied with forty rounds of ammunition each and disembarked. Having no teams, nothing but what the men could carry could be taken along. Everything else was stored upon the muddy bank and a guard of invalids placed over it. A weary march of six miles was made to reach the Head Quarters of Gen. GRANT, to whom Col. DAVIS reported on the afternoon of February 14th. The Regiment was assigned to Gen. LEW WALLACE'S command, but was not ordered to the front until the morning of the 15th of February. Having no tents and only a limited supply of blankets and rations, the men suffered greatly during the cold and snowy night. It was a very rough initiation into the soldier's life, and few

40

indeed were the number who did not wish for a speedy termination of the war and the termination of their enlistment.

On the morning of the 15th the Regiment was assigned a position near the right of the line where the rebels had the day previous attempted to cut their way through and where it was apprehended they would make another attempt. The regiment, however, with the exception of changing position several times during the day, rested quietly upon its arms until about three P. M., when it was ordered to the front and right to support a battery that was about to open on the enemy in their works. No sooner had the Regiment taken its position partially protected from the enemy's fire by a low ridge upon which the battery was posted, than the enemy opened a most terrific fire to dislodge our battery, which was annoying them very much, wounding three of our men, one mortally. After having several horses killed and wounded, the battery retired. There being no sign of the enemy attempting any advance, Col. DAVIS withdrew the Regiment to a more sheltered position where it remained, until night put a stop to all further work, and then marched to its bivouac of the preceding night, which proved even more cheerless than the first.

Early on the morning of the 16th while moving to our position of the previous day, messengers met us with the joyful tidings that the enemy had surrendered, which was soon made apparent by the numerous white flags seen floating over their works. The Regiment continued its march through the rebel works and into the town of Dover, where it was at once detailed to guard the immense stores left by the enemy upon the landing. Very soon Gunboats and transports arrived at the landing loaded with troops and supplies, the latter of which were very acceptable to our almost famished soldiers.

On the 17th of February the Regiment was assigned to Gen. Thayer's brigade and ordered to proceed to Fort Henry, Tenn. It was provided with two four mule teams to draw rations and cooking utensils, while the tents and all other baggage was forwarded by boat down the Cumberland and up the Tennessee rivers to Fort Henry. The Regiment arrived at Fort Henry on the afternoon of the 19th February in a terrible rainstorm and through mud indescribable. While at the Fort the Regiment occupied the log huts or barracks constructed by the Confederates, which proved most convenient and comfortable.

On the fifth of March orders were received to proceed by boat up the Tennessee River. During that afternoon and night, with great difficulty and labor, the baggage, supplies and ammunition were put on board the Steamer "Aurora." The water was very high, overflowing the banks and filling the bayous, which made it necessary to transport all the baggage to the steamer in a few small and miserably constructed

41

boats and dug-outs, making it a very tedious as well as laborious operation.

The Regiment embarked on the 6th and started up the river on the 7th. After many delays it arrived at Savanah, Tenn., on the 12th. It laid in the vicinity of Savanah until the morning of the 18th, when it proceeded up the river, arriving at Pittsburg Landing on the same evening. March 19th, disembarked and went into camp one and a half miles from the landing, the men having to carry the greater part of their tents and baggage to camp, for the want of other means of transportation. The trip from Fort Henry to Pittsburg Landing, on account of the crowded condition of the boat, bad water, and want of proper opportunity for exercise, proved very injurious to the health of the Regiment. Several died on the way and the sick list was largely increased.

Before leaving Fort Henry the Regiment was assigned to the 2nd Brigade, 4th Division. The Brigade consisted of the 14th, 15th and 46th Illinois, and the 25th Indiana Infantry and was commanded by Col. James C. Veatch of the latter regiment. The Division was commanded by Brig. Gen. STEPHEN A. HURLBUT, of Illinois. The regiment remained quietly in camp, drilling and doing camp and picket duty, until the battle of Shiloh, on the 6th and 7th of April. On the night of the 4th of April, our camps were alarmed and our Brigade moved out about two miles to Gen. SHERMAN'S camp, when we were ordered back, being told that it was a false alarm. The part taken in the battle of Shiloh by the Regiment is fully and ably set forth in the following reports, viz:

COLONEL JOHN A. DAVIS' REPORT.

HEADQUARTERS 46TH REGT. ILL. VOL. INFT'Y.
PITTSBURG LANDING, TENN., AP'L 8th, 1862.

CAPT. F. W. Fox,

Asst. Adjt. Gen'l. 2nd Brigade 4th Division.

Captain: — I have the honor to report to you that, on Sunday morning the 6th inst., at about 7 1/2 o'clock, A. M., the enemies fire was first heard in my camp, whereupon I ordered my men to hold themselves in readiness to march at a moments notice, and in less than five minutes after receiving your order my regiment was on the march to the battle-field, reaching there between 9 and 10 o'clock, A. M. It took a position ordered by Col. Veatch in person. A regiment posted about two hundred yards in front of our line gave way under the enemies fire, and retreated through my line which was lying down. As soon as it passed my men rose, dressed their line and immediately commenced pouring a destructive fire into the enemy. The regiment posted on our right

42

gave way and the enemy, keeping up a hot fire along my whole front and a raking cross fire upon my right flank, killing and wounding over one half of my right companies, badly cutting up my other companies, eight of my line officers, the Major and color bearer wounded, I deemed it my duty, without further orders, to withdraw my command, which I did, to a position beyond the brow of a hill, where I again formed it by command of Col. Veatch. Finding no support to my right or left, I fell back to the foot of the hill, finding the 49th Illinois Infantry, commanded by Lieut. Col. Pease, at whose request I assumed command of both regiments and moved them by the right flank and established a line of battle on the ground which had been occupied by a portion of Gen. McClernand's Division, and in front of where Taylor's Battery was then planted. The enemy appearing in large force over the ground from which we had just retreated, I was ordered to withdraw my troops that the Battery could open fire on the enemy. The 49th Ill. Infantry deployed to the left and my regiment to the right of the Battery. Forming my men again in the rear of a fence fronting the enemy, I ordered them to lay down and prepared to resist any attack the enemy might make upon the Battery.

Having succeeded in driving the enemy over the brow of the hill, the 1st Brigade of Sherman's Division appeared upon the ground for the purpose of following up the enemy in their retreat. I joined my command upon the left of this Brigade and moved up in line to within two hundred yards of the enemy, when a brisk and destructive fire opened upon our whole line. Planting our colors in front of our line of battle, I ordered my command to shelter themselves behind trees and logs as best they could, within short range of the enemy, and kept up a constant fire until the regiment on our right had given away and fallen back across the ravine, when I ordered my men to fall back into the ravine, and moving them by the left flank I took them out of the range of the enemies guns. In this last engagement, Capt. Wm. Young, of company "G." who had succeeded in rallying more men after the first engagement than any other Captain, and who heroically told me he would stand by me and the colors until the last man was killed, fell, shot through the mouth, and was carried from the field. Reinforcements now arriving, and my men having been compelled to fall back from these two fierce engagements, had become somewhat scattered. It being now one o'clock, my ammunition exhausted, having lost my horse in the first engagement, and compelled to go on foot the balance of the time, and finding myself within a half mile of my Regimental encampment, I marched my men to it for dinner. Calling my men into line immediately after dinner, I formed them on the right of the Brigade, commanded by Col. C. C. Marsh, at his request, in front or and to the left of my camp, where we again met the enemy. A Battery on my left leaving under the fire of the enemy, the regiments

43

both on the right and left fell back, but my line did not waver, and the other regiments were again rallied and stopped the advance of the enemy.

We lay in this position on our arms all night. After breakfast in the morning, still retaining my position on the right of Col. Marsh's Brigade, I moved with him until I reached and went beyond the ground of our last engagement of Sunday, when our skirmishers were driven in and some confusion arising on the left of our Brigade, Col. Marsh ordered the Brigade to fall back and changing the whole front of his line to the left, he again moved the Brigade forward, The enemy soon drove in our pickets and we found him in strength along the whole line of our front, and when within two hundred yards the fire opened upon both sides, my men loading and firing with the coolness of veterans. Here I had another horse shot from under me in the midst of the engagement and while the battle was raging with the utmost fury. My men determined that they had fallen back for the last time, and while receiving the fire of the enemy and delivering their own with the utmost coolness, I was wounded and carried from the field. Lieut. Col. Jones reports that my men still stood firm, holding their ground, although outflanked, with the colors of the 46th and those of the rebels planted within thirty yards of each other and the enemy driven back for the last time, when the 46th was ordered, by Gen. Hurlbut in person, to their quarters.

I ought not to close this communication without bearing tribute to the gallantry and bravery of my command. Lieut. Col. Jones was with the regiment throughout all its engagements, and did his duty manfully. Maj. Dornblaser, severely wounded in the arm in the early part of the action, remained with me until the men were brought off the field and re-formed, and did not leave until after a peremptory order from my self to go to his quarters. Capt. Musser of Company "A," while his brave company was assailed by overwhelming numbers to the front and right flank, still kept his fire pouring upon the enemy and his ranks dressed until himself wounded and carried from the field, seven of his men killed and twenty wounded in the action. The company held its ground as did all the others until ordered to retreat. Capt. Stevens while bravely keeping his men in line to bring them off the field, fell, fatally wounded, the nearest man of his company to the rebel line. Capt. Marble of Company "E," fell while brandishing his sword and calling on the Major begged him to take it, saying, "if the robs get me they shall not get my sword." Capt. McCracken received a several contusion in the first engagement, but kept on duty with his company the whole of the two days. Lieuts. Hood, Barr, Arnold, Ingraham and Howell were all wounded in the first engagement of Sunday while manfully doing their duty at their posts. Too much praise cannot be awarded to the

44

brave officers and men of the 46th Illinois Infantry who helped to win our signal victory.

All of which is respectfully submitted.

JOHN A. DAVIS,
Col. Comd'g 46th Ill. Vol. Inft'y.

LETTER OF THANKS FROM COL. C. C. MARSH.

HEADQUARTERS 2ND BRIG. 1ST Div.,
April 9th, 1862.

DEAR SIR: — I beg to thank you and the officers and soldiers of the 46th Illinois Infantry for their noble conduct during the action of Monday morning last, when your lamented Colonel so promptly responded to my request to take a position in my command and so gallantly led you in the face of the enemy with so fatal a result to himself. My heartfelt sympathies are with you in your severe loss, and your soldierly conduct shall receive a fitting notice in my official report.

I am, sir, Truly Yours,

C. C. MARSH,
Col. 20th Ill. Inft'y, Comd'g Brigade.

EXTRACT FROM COLONEL VEATCH'S REPORT.

HEADQUARTERS 2ND BRIG. 4TH Div.
PITTSBURG, TENN., April 10th, 1862.

CAPTAIN S. D. ATKINS,

A. A. A. Gen'l, 4th Division.

On Sunday morning while most of the troops were at breakfast, heavy firing was heard on our line in a direction southwest from my camp. In a few moments the 2d Brigade, consisting of the 14th Illinois Infantry, Col. Hall, 15th Illinois Infantry, Lieut. Col. Ellis, 46th Illinois Infantry, Col. Davis, and 25th Indiana Infantry, Lieut. Col. Morgan, was formed in line and awaiting orders. In a short time Gen. Hurlbut's aid, Lieut. Long, directed me to move forward to support Gen. Sherman, and to take a position near a field used for reviews, beyond Col. Rap's Headquarters. When we reached the field the enemy was pressing rapidly forward toward that point. A line of battle was already formed in front of us and a second line in the rear of the first was being formed on our right. I had but little time to examine the ground, but took the best position that could be found to support the troops in front of us. An officer representing himself as acting under Gen. Sherman's orders, rode up in great haste and directed me to move my Brigade by the

45

right flank and join to the line which was forming on our right. I executed the movement as directed but it placed the right of my Brigade on worse ground than I had chosen, though it had the advantage of forming a line of battle of greater length.

The enemy now opened fire on the troops in front of us which threw them into confusion and they broke through the lines of the 15th and 46th Illinois Infantry, many of them without returning a fire. At the same time the line on the right of this Brigade gave way and left the 15th Illinois Infantry exposed to the whole force of the enemies fire in front and a raking fire from the right. Lieut. Col. Ellis heroically held the ground and returned the fire with deadly effect. While cheering his men and directing their fire, he fell, mortally wounded. Nearly at the same time Major Goddard was killed, and the regiment, without field officers, was compelled to fall back before overpowering numbers.

The enemy was moving another heavy column on the point occupied by Col. Davis of the 46th Illinois Infantry The line in front of him broke and rushed through his ranks, throwing them into confusion. As soon as these scattered troops had cleared his front he poured in a well directed fire upon the enemy, which for a time checked his progress, but it was impossible to hold his position against a force so far superior. Major Dornblaser was severely wounded, a large number of his company officers disabled and his color guard shot down. Col. Davis seized his colors and bore them from the field, presenting a most noted mark for the enemy who sent after him a terrific fire as he retired. I directed him to fall back and rally his men in the rear of the fresh troops that were then advancing.

It will not be claiming too much for this Brigade to say, that, but for its determined resistance to the enemy, he would have reached the center of our camp early in the day. The field officers behaved with gallantry on every occasion.

Col. Davis. Lieut. Col. Jones and Major Dornblaser of the 46th Illinois Infantry, each displayed coolness and courage in resisting the heavy columns thrown against them. Major Dornblaser was wounded and compelled to leave the field early on the first day. Col. Davis was severely wounded on the second day while gallantly fighting in Col. Marsh's Brigade and was carried from the field. Lieut. Col. Jones took command and conducted his regiment with skill and courage until the battle closed.

JAMES C. VEATCH,
Colonel Commanding Brigade.

BEIG. GEN. S. A. HURLBUT'S CONGRATULATORY ORDER.

The General commanding tenders his heartfelt congratulations to the surviving officers and men of his Division, for their magnificent services during the two days of struggle which, under the blessing of God has resulted in victory. Let the Division remember, that for five hours on Sunday they held, under the most terrific fire, the key point of the left of the army and only fell back when outflanked by overwhelmning numbers, pressing through points abandoned by our supports. Let them remember, that when they fell back it was in order, and that the last line of resistance in rear of the heavy guns was formed first by this Division, Let them remember, that on the morning of Monday, without food and without sleep, they were ordered forward to reinforce the right, and that whenever either Brigade of this Division appeared in the field of action, they were in time to support broken planks and to hold the line. Keep these facts in your memory, to hand down to your children when we conquer a peace, and let it be the chief pride of every man in the command — as it is of your General —that he was at Pittsburg with the Fighting Fourth Division.

By Order of BRIG. GEN. S. A. HURLBUT:

Smith D. Atkins,
A. A. A. Gen'l, 4th Division.

During the two days fighting at Shiloh, the regiment lost one hundred and ninety-six men killed, wounded and missing.

Prior to the battle, Col. Davis obtained sufficient transportation for the regiment, it having been in the field nearly two months without the means of transporting rations or baggage except what was carried by the men.

On the 24th of April, the regiment with the Brigade commenced its march upon Corinth, Miss. The first day it marched but four miles and went into camp, from which it did not again move until the 30th of April. On the 29th of April Major Hazelton, Paymaster U. S. A., paid the regiment up to February 28th, being the first pay that it had received since its organization. On the 30th of April the old Fourth Division made its famous march through Monterey, Tenn. Although the distance made was but five miles, it was a very hard day's march through such a rain storm and over such roads as will never be forgotten. The teams with the baggage and supplies could not get through until the following day. The regiment went into camp at Pea Ridge, where it remained until the fourth of May, when it again advanced a few miles. Skirmishing with the enemy now commenced, they disputing our way almost constantly. On the eighth of

47

May we advanced two miles toward Corinth, driving the enemy and capturing some prisoners and property. On the 9th the rebel pickets were pressed back nearly three miles, and on the 10th our camp was taken to the front. Our lines were thus advanced from day to day with more or less skirmishing until the 14th of May, when the work of throwing up heavy lines of eathworks was commenced in good earnest and the siege of Corinth actually began.

On the 21st of May another advance was made, and another line of works thrown up. On the 27th the 46th Illinois Infantry was sent around to the rear of Corinth with a large force of Cavalry, on a reconnoisance. Near Purdy Church the enemy was encountered by the advance guard of cavalry.

The 46th was at once ordered to the front, one company ("A") was deployed as skirmishers and the remainder formed into line as fast as they could come up. The enemy soon appeared upon a full charge, but after receiving a volly from the skirmishers, turned and fled in great confusion, with a loss to them of eight killed and wounded and no loss to us. The object of the expedition having been accomplished, we returned to camp very much fatigued by our long and rapid march. The particular object of sending one small regiment of Infantry on a scout with over three thousand cavalry, and when the enemy was encountered, hurrying the Infantry forward on the run to the front, could never be fully comprehended by the combined wisdom of the regiment.

On the 29th our lines were again advanced three fourths of a mile, and a line of heavy works thrown up. Early on the morning of the 30th, it was discovered that the enemy had evacuated Corinth during the previous day and night, thus enabling our army to take peaceable possession of the town.

On the 2d of June we broke camp and marched through Corinth, and went into camp six miles west from the town. On the 9th the regiment was again paid by Major Phelps, for March and April. On the 10th marched fifteen miles to Hatchie River and constructed a bridge across the same on the 11th, which had been destroyed by the rebels to retard our pursuit. Our march was leisurely continued until Sunday, June 15th, when we passed through Grand Junction, Tenn., and went into camp at Cold Springs, three miles southwest from Grand Junction. Here the regiment did its first drilling since the battle of Shiloh, its music consisting of one snare and one base drum. On the 24th we moved our camp four miles to a point two miles west of La Grange. The place of our encampment here is known by the regiment as "Collar Bone Hill."

June 30th, left camp at 2 p. m., and marched twelve miles to old "Lamar Church" in the direction of Holly Springs, Miss. July 1st, marched to Cold Water Creek. It was reported that the rebels had a camp at this place, but we found no enemy and went into camp. On the 3d we had a big scare, which brought us into line in a remarkably short space

48

of time. It was reported that the enemy were advancing upon us in large force, but after making a more cool and accurate reconnoisance it proved a false alarm, being one of our own regiments coming in from a scout.

On the 5th of July, we commenced our return march, having accomplished all that was expected. We returned by the same route we came and arrived at La Grange on the 6th. The heat was intense on our return march, and water poor and scarce, causing much suffering. A number of men in the command were sun-struck.

On the 17th of July we struck tents and commenced our march to Memphis, Tenn., going to Moscow the first day, to Lafayette the second, to Germantown the third, to Whites' Station the fourth, and on the fifth day, July 21st, to camp two miles South of Memphis, on the east bank of the Mississippi River.

The distance from La Grange to Memphis is fifty miles, and the march was made in the hottest weather and over the most dusty roads. The regiment had been unable to procure new clothes for a long time and its appearance when entering the city of Memphis called forth anything but complimentary remarks as to its dress. Several officers had to substitute their last pair of drawers for pants. Jew clothing dealers went into ecstacies of delight as they saw the ragged column pass in anticipation of large sales and larger profits.

The regiment was engaged in camp and picket duty until August 27th, when it went with the Brigade on a scout on the "Pigeon Roost" road running southeast from Memphis to Nonconah Creek, six miles from Memphis, and encamped. On the 29th went two miles further, the cavalry going in advance, capturing some twenty-five prisoners. Returned to camp on the 31st, having accomplished but little.

On the 6th of September, the whole Division started in the direction of Brownsville, Tenn., to which place it was supposed we were ordered. We had orders to be ready to march at 2, a. m., consequently the men were aroused at one o'clock, tents struck and wagons loaded, but the order to march did not come until four o'clock p. m. We marched through the city and encamped for the night near Wolf river, five miles from Memphis. On the 7th, marched sixteen miles through Raleigh and Union Station on the M. & C. R. R. Rested on the 8th. September 9th, marched to Big Muddy River, — a very appropriate name — where the bridge had been destroyed by the rebels. After constructing a crossing so as to enable us to resume our march, a messenger arrived with orders for us to proceed to Bolivar, Tenn., instead of Brownsville. Hence on the 11th we moved by the way of Hampton Station and Danville, and on the 12th through Whiteville to Pleasant Creek, three miles northeast of Bolivar. On the 14th we changed camp, passing through Bolivar to the Hatchie river, two miles north of town. We were obliged to change our camp every few days from one side of the town

49

to the other until the 24th of September. On the 27th of September all the troops of this place were reviewed by Generals McPherson, Veatch and Lauman. They made a very fine appearance.

While here Colonel John A. Davis returned to the regiment and was very warmly greeted. He had been absent since the battle of Shiloh, suffering from a severe wound, which still troubled him.

On the 4th of October orders were received to proceed towards Corinth to make a division in favor of our force there, which had been attacked by Price and Van Dorn. When near Matamora on Hatchie river, a large force of rebels were encountered and vigorously attacked by our forces, soon driving them across the river, capturing several pieces of artillery and a large number of prisoners. The part taken by the 46th Illinois in this engagement is fully given in the following report:

LIEUT. COL. JOHN J. JONES' REPORT.

HEADQUARTERS 46TH ILLS. VOL. INFT'Y.
BOLIVAR, TENN., Oct. 9th, 1862.

CAPTAIN F. W. Fox,

A. A. Gen'l 2nd Brig. 4th Division.

Captain — At eight o'clock on the morning of the 5th inst., under orders from Brig. Gen. Veatch, the 46th regiment took a position on the right of the 2d Brigade, in the advance, to support Bolton's Battery, two miles west of the Big Hatchie. After firing shots the Battery took a position half a mile in advance, where they opened a galling fire upon the rebels, which lasted about three-fourths of an hour, when the word "forward" was given. The men all moved at the word and soon received the melancholy intelligence that our loved and gallant Col. Davis was again severely wounded by a canister shot. When I took command and announced this, the regiment seemed determined to avenge their loss, and soon an opportunity offered, for at this moment the rebels opened their first volly at short range, which was received with great coolness by the men until they heard the command to fire which they did and charged, driving the rebels over and from their batteries to the opposite bank of the river. Here the enemy made a stand, and confidently expected to repulse our force, but the word was still "forward," and on we marched at double-quick, forming in line over the river. Here Sergeant John E. Hershey, color bearer, fell wounded. Corpl. Thomas E. Joiner, of company "G," true to duty, bore both colors across the field and handed one to Priv. James Hobdey, of company "I," who done it honor through the day. At this time Captain F. W. Fox, of General Veatch's Staff, took the front and called the46th to follow him, when

50

the regiment charged with cheer after cheer, until the field was theirs. In the last line formed, about four o'clock, p. m., the brave and generous Lt. Moses B. Thompson fell mortally wounded. I cannot close this report without special mention of Assistant Surgeon Benj. H. Bradshaw, who, unassisted, took the wounded from amid the ranks, doing even more than his duty; also the officers of the line, who were all at their posts, fearless of rebel power, and if honor has been won it is due to them and their brave men alone. Herewith is a report of the killed and wounded of my command.

Very Respectfully, Your Ob't Serv't,

JOHN J. JONES,
Lieutenant Colonel Commanding

Brig. Gen. Veatch in his report of the battle of the Hatchie, speaks in the highest terms of his Brigade. He says: "The field and staff officers of every regiment appeared to do all that could be done to render victory complete. The line officers, so far as their conduct came within my notice, did their whole duty, and the men moved with steadiness and resolute courage not easily surpassed. The loss in killed and wounded embraces many valuable officers. Col. John A. Davis of the 46th Illinois infantry, fell severely wounded early in the action while gallantly leading his regiment in a charge. He has since died of his wounds.

He was generous, noble and brave, and will be regretted by all who knew him."

GENERAL VEATCH'S CONGRATULATORY ORDER.

HEADQUARTERS 2ND BRIGADE 4TH DIVISION,
BOLIVAR, TENN., Oct. 9th, 1862.

GENERAL ORDERS, No. 62.

The General desires to congratulate the troops of his command on the brilliant victory of the battle of the Hatchie. On no field since the war began has better fighting been done. The force of the enemy greatly superior in numbers, were posted in the very strongest positions, and commanded by those veteran Generals Van Dorn and Price. You met them, you fought them, you drove them, you defeated and routed them, capturing a battery and hundreds of prisoners. You compelled them to seek shelter on the east side of the Hatchie. Here the 1st Brigade came to your support and with Hurlbut's fighting fourth Division united, you drove them again from their last stronghold and forced them to a hasty retreat. While we rejoice in victory we regret the loss of many brave men. Let us honor the memory of our

51

fallen comrades, and transmit to their friends the story of their noble deeds. The wounded who survive will carry their battle scars which will speak more eloquently for their bravery and daring than words can do.

A battery of four field pieces captured by this brigade has been entrusted to your care by the Major General commanding the Division. These pieces, manufactured in rebel workshops, will be made to do service for the Union in the hands of Bolton and Burnap.

Officers and men of the 2d Brigade! You have the confidence of your Generals, and the respect and esteem of all loyal citizens. Let your future good conduct maintain the high reputation you have gained. Remember that you belong to "Hurlbut's Fighting Fourth Division;" that what be commands you will obey; what he orders you will execute; where he leads you will follow with full confidence of honor and victory.

By Order of Brig. Gen. JAMES C. VEATCH:
F. W. Fox, A. A. Gen'l.

After the battle the regiment returned to its camp at Bolivar, Tenn. Col. John A. Davis and Lieutenant Moses R. Thompson died of their wounds on the 10th of October, and their remains sent home for burial. Both were men of the highest worth and standing at home. Both entered the service with the purest motives, and both received their death wounds while bravely and nobly fighting at their posts. Their memories will ever be kindly cherished.

On the 3d of November, the regiment with the Brigade, marched to La Grange, Tenn., via Grand Junction, and went into the old camp at La Grange, where we remained till the 28th of November, nothing noteworthy occurring excepting a few Grand Reviews. We then took up our line of march to Holly Springs, Miss., where we arrived on the night of the 29th. November 30th marched south toward the Tallehatchie River, and went into camp near Waterford, twelve miles south of Holly Springs. The enemy abandoned his works on the Tallehatchie and retreated towards Oxford. We remained in camp, in an old cornfield, which became extremely muddy during the heavy rains, until the 9th of December, when we changed our camp to a fine wood two miles south, where it was almost universally supposed we should remain for the winter; hence, on the 10th our grounds were put in splendid condition, tents pitched in line, chimneys built and our camp christened "Camp Hall," when suddenly all our plans were frustrated by an order to be ready to march at seven a. m., the next day. December 11th, marched twenty miles to Hurricane Creek, six miles from Oxford, and the next day eleven miles beyond Oxford to the vicinity of Yoncona Station on the Mississippi Central R. R., where we remained

52

until December 22d, when we marched five miles to Taylor Station on the same road.

Van Dorn having captured Holly Springs and cut off our communication, our forces marched north again on the 23d, through Oxford to Hurricane Creek, a distance of seventeen miles and arriving at noon. On the 24th the 46th Illinois and 33d Wisconsin Infantry, in command of Colonel Moore, left Hurricane Creek in charge of the corps train, arriving safe on the north side of the Tallehatchie late on the same night. We remained in the camp until the 26th of December, making Christmas as merry as the means at our command would permit, when we moved our camp four miles nearer Holly Springs, between Waterford and Wyatt Station on the Mississippi Central Railroad.

Here the near year of 1863 was duly inaugurated with a feast, the best the country could afford, which was our whole dependence, as Uncle Sam's commissary had ceased to honor requisitions. The feast consisted of cornin all the varieties of style known to experienced camp cooks, except corn in the juice. However, the New Year's Day was not the least happy one.

On the 6th of January, we marched to Holly Springs, where we remained to the 10th, when the 15th and 46th Illinois Infantry were ordered to escort the ammunition train to La Grange, Tenn., at which place we arrived late of the night of the 11th of January. Our progress was very slow and tedious on account of muddy roads and emaciated condition of the mules attached to the train.

On the 13th of January, we marched to Moscow, Tenn., nice miles west of La Grange. Remained in Moscow doing guard duty until February 5th, when we went to La Fayette, Tenn., eight miles west. The garrison at Moscow up to this time consisted of the 1st Brigade, 4th Division, and the 46th and 76th Illinois Infantry of the 2d Brigade, and two batteries. After rejoining the Brigade at La Fayette and performing similar duties as at Moscow until the 9th of March, we marched via Collierville and Germantown to Memphis, Tenn., arriving at the latter place on the 12th. We went into camp on the northeast side of the city, near the fair ground, which made quite an extensive as well as beautiful drill ground.

On the 21st of April the 46th, 14th Illinois Infantry, and 5th Ohio Battery were sent out to re-enforce Colonel Bryant of the 12th Wisconsin Infantry, who had going in the direction of Hernando, Miss., with a Brigade and met the enemy in force near Cold Water. He then moved his whole force again three miles south of Hernando and encamped for the night, as the cavalry had reported the enemy gone. Colonel Bryant had captured and sent to Memphis about seventy prisoners and a large lot of mules and horses. April 23d, commenced our return march to Memphis, where we arrived on the 24th, thoroughly drenched by a heavy rain. We met

53

with no loss and the troops made the march in good time and in fine order. We remained in camp at Memphis until the 13th of May, when we embarked on the Steamer "Clara Poe," and left the same evening for Vicksburg, Miss. Passed Helena on the morning of the 14th and Napoleon at six o'clock p. m., same day. Private Gottlieb Vohmer, "C" Co. fell overboard during the night and was drowned. As we passed Games' Landing, Arkansas, the Steamer "Fort Wayne," with the 76th Illinois Infantry on board, was fired into by guerillas from the Arkansas shore. Three men were wounded and the boat disabled by running foul of some drift wood, breaking the wheel and rudder. We reached Young's Point, La., at 8 p. m., May 15th. Disembarked on the 16th and went into camp near the landing. At eleven o'clock a. m., on the 18th, we marched across the Point to Bower's Landing, below Vicksburg, leaving all our tents and baggage at Sherman's Landing. On the next day a portion of the Brigade embarked and went to Grand Gulf, but the 46th and the two Batteries belonging to the Brigade were obliged to await the return of the transports that had taken the other troops. Before their return, however, orders were received by us to return at once to Sherman's Landing, as General Grant had opened communication via the Yazoo River to the troops in the rear of Vicksburg. Arrived at Sherman's Landing on the night of the 19th, and at noon on the 20th embarked on the Steamer "Luminary," and proceeded up the Yazoo river to Chickasaw Bayou. Disembarked and moved three miles in a southeasterly direction across the swamps to the bluff.

On the 21st of May the balance of the Brigade joined us and proceeded to the right of Gen. Grant's lines about the city. We were at once ordered to Snyder's Bluffs on the Yazoo river, ten miles from Vicksburg. Went into camp at the Bluffs on the same evening, much disappointed that we were not permitted to enter the line of attack. The object of sending us to this place was to watch a large rebel force said to be advancing to form a junction with the Vicksburg garrison.

On the 24th of May we marched in the direction of Vicksburg on the Benton road. The road was extremely dry and dusty and the weather very warm, making it a very hard march. On the 25th we marched to the extreme left of our lines near the Mississippi river, below Vicksburg, and relieved Gen. McArthur's Division. The regiment was detailed for picket duty, and during the night one wing was surrounded and one hundred and thirteen officers and men captured by the enemy. The particulars of the capture are set forth in the following reports, viz:

HEADQUARTERS 46TH ILL. VOL. INFANTRY.
IN THE FIELD, June 7th, 1863.

S. P. BOURQUIN,

A. A. A. General:

Lieutenant: — In compliance with orders from Division Headquarters, with reference to a capture of a portion of the 46th Illinois Infantry, I have the honor to report that on the afternoon of the 25th of May, the regiment was detailed to relieve the 63d Illinois Infantry on picket duty. At 4 o'clock p. m., the regiment reported at Brigade Headquarters, but owing to unavoidable difficulties the regiment was not fully posted until after 7 o'clock p. m. Five componies — a portion of which were captured — were posted by Lieut. Col. John J. Jones of my regiment, under the guidance of the Major of the 63d Illinois Infantry, and upon the same ground in the same manner that the 63d was posted at the time we relieved them, which line extended from and near a cotton gin on the Warrenton road westward to a swamp which we supposed and had been informed was impassable. The other portion of the regiment was posted from the Warrenton road, eastward to the pickets of the 1st Brigade by myself, but owing to the lateness of the hour when I arrived at the center of our lines, and having implicit confidence in the ability and skill of Lieut. Col. Jones and other officers on that portion of the line, I deemed it entirely unnecessary to visit it The first alarm occurred at about half past nine o'clock p. m. I heard several sharp volleys of musketry. I immediately strengthened the several posts nearest the point of alarm, and proceeded in person to the point from whence the alarm came, to discover, if possible, the cause. I had gone but a short distance when I discovered a body of troops moving rapidly along a skirt of timber towards the river, which proved to be rebel soldiers. Owing to the extended line of pickets, I had only men enough to hold that portion of the line east of the Warrenton road. Unable to hear anything from the pickets on the west side of the road, and fearing some disaster had befallen them, I immediately deployed skirmishers along the Warrenton road, which afforded then a full view of the ground between it and the river bluff, in order to guard against a flank movement of the enemy with a view to cut us off and capture us. At the earliest opportunity, I notified the Brigade commanders, Col. Hall and Col. McGowan, commanding a Brigade in Gen. McArthur's Division, who both rendered me prompt assistance. For more full and complete particulars, I refer you to the reports of officers of my command enclosed herewith.

As to the degree of vigilance exercised by the officers and men of my command, I can only speak of those under my own control, which met with my entire approbation, and from the known character of the officers in charge of the captured portion of the regiment, with possibly one exception,

55

which I have not yet sufficient information to report, I believe the disaster to be more attributable to an injudicious posting of the pickets than to a lack of vigilance.

Very Respectfully, Your Ob't Sv't.,

B. DORNBLASER, Col. Comd'g Reg't.

The remainder of the regiment took a very active part in the siege of Vicksburg, from the 25th of May until its surrender on the 4th of July, doing picket duty both in the front and rear, digging trenches, &c., &c.

The 4th of July will be kept in sacred remembrance by all who took part in the famous siege of Vicksburg.

On the afternoon of July 4th, orders were received to keep our men in camp and prepare for a march. Next morning the Division left camp and proceeded to Clear Creek, twelve miles east of Vicksburg on the Vicksburg and Jackson railroad. The day was extremely warm and the roads very dusty. July 6th, marched through Edward's Station to near Bolton's Station, twenty miles. We marched part of the night until the rainstorm made the roads impassable, which, with the extreme darkness, rendered further progress out of the question. The only shelter we had from the driving storm was a rail fence, which afforded both warmth and shelter. July 7th, marched three miles and encamped until dusk, then resumed our march in the rear of the corps train until twelve o'clock and bivouacked until morning. July 8th, marched to Clinton, and on the 9th the Brigade was detailed to guard the train to Jackson, Miss. Marched six miles and parked the train on Dickson's plantation, where we remained in charge of the train until the afternoon of the 12th, when we were ordered to proceed to Jackson and report for orders to Gen. A. P. Hovey, Gen. Lauman having been relieved of the command of the 4th Division after making his disasterous charge upon the enemies works.

The 46th Illinois Infantry was posted on the extreme right of our line, near Pearl river south of Jackson. Earthworks were thrown up in front of the regiment and a battery placed in position to command both front and flank. Our 4th Division was temporarily assigned to the 12th Division 13th Army Corps, commanded by Gen. A. P. Hovey. The siege was actively carried on from the 12th to the 16th of July, when the enemy evacuated the place. The regiment did its full share of the work.

COL. HALL'S REPORT OF THE SECOND BRIGADE.

HEADQUARTERS 4TH BRIGADE 12TH DIVISION.
JACKSON, MISS., JULY, 1863.

CAPTAIN PHILIPS:

A. A. Gen'l., 12th Division, 13th Army Corps.

Captain: — I have the honor to report to you the part taken by my command, consisting of the 14th, 15th, 46th and 76th Illinois Infantry, Co. "K," 2d Illinois Artillery, and 4th Ohio Battery, before the fortified city of Jackson.

Late on the p. m. of the 12th instant, whilst encamped at Dickson's plantation five miles west of Jackson, I received orders from Major General E. O. C. 3rd, commanding 13th Army Corps, directing me to report to Brig. Gen. A. P. Hovey, commanding 12th Division 13th Army Corps, for orders, which order I obeyed as speedily as possible, arriving at Gen. Hovey's Headquarters at nine o'clock p. m. At 4 o'clock a. m., I put the column in motion and took a position on a ridge on the east side of the New Orleans and Jackson railroad, which position we immediately proceeded to entrench and put in the best possible state of defense.

On the morning of the 15th, I was ordered by Gen. Hovey to send scouts from my right east to Pearl River, which duty was performed by 2d Lieut. Reed and six men from company "I," 15th Illinois Infantry, in a very able and satisfactory, manner, finding the enemy in force on the east side, with one company on the west side as pickets. After making known to Gen. Hovey the disposition of the enemy's force, I was ordered to take the 15th, 46th and 76th Illinois Infantry and make a rapid move on the enemy at the river. The move was made with great rapidity, but not sufficiently so as to, overtake the enemy. We reached the river just in time to, see the last of their pickets pass out of sight on the opposite bank.

On the morning of the 16th it became apparent to some of the officers of my command that the enemy was evacuating Jackson, which fact I at once communicated to Gen. Hovey, it being the first intimation he had of it.

The spirit manifested by both officers and men during the short siege was highly commendable, obeying with alacrity every order, and executing the work assigned them with zeal and enthusiasm. To Col. B. Dornblaser and Capt. R. P. McKnight, A. A. G. of this Brigade, I am particularly indebted for valuable information obtained by reconoitering the enemy's works.

Respectfully your Obedient Servant,

CYRUS HALL.
Colonel Commanding Brigade.

On the night of the 16th of July, the rebels evacuated the

57

town and retreated rapidly toward Meridian, leaving us to take quiet possession on the 17th. After pursuing the enemy and destroying the railroad and other public property in and about Jackson, the troops commenced their return march on the 21st, via Raymond and Big Black Bridge to Vicksburg, where we arrived at one p. m. on the 23d, having marched over fifty miles in two days and a half, through terrible heat and dust.

The Division was again detached from the 12th Division, and placed in command of Brig. Gen. M. M. Crocker, and soon after transferred to the 17th Army Corps by General Orders No. 214, Department Headquarters. August 11th, 1863, embarked on Steamer "Rocket," and left on the morning of the 12th for Natchez, Miss., where we arrived the next morning. The regiment at once disembarked and went into camp one and a halt miles from the city, northeast, where it remained doing camp and garrison duty until September 1st, when it started out with the Division on an expedition into Louisiana. The following is a report of the same:

REPORT OF EXPEDITION INTO LOUISIANA.

HEADQUARTERN 46TH ILL. INFT'Y VOLS.
NATCHEZ, MISS., Sept. 8th, 1863.

CAPTAIN R. P. McKNIGHT,

A. A. Gen'l. 2d Brig. 4th Div. 17th Army Corps.

Captain: — I have the honor to report that the regiment left this camp at 12 m., September 1st, and marched with the Brigade, in the place assigned it by your order, to the Mississippi river at Natchez. Crossed over in transports and encamped for the night at Vidalia, La. Early on the 2d it took up its line of march at the Head of the Brigade, and marched sixteen miles to the west side of Cross Bayou, going into camp at sundown. On the 3d, marched to Trinity on the Washita river twelve miles, arriving there a little past noon. By your order the 46th and 76th Illinois Infantry, both under my command, were left at this place to guard the trains and ferry, whilst the balance of the force proceeded to Harrisonburg, La. Upon your return on the 5th, the regiment was ordered to escort a part of the artillery and Brigade train to Cross Bayou, ferry the same across and select the camp for the night for the Brigade; all of which was safely accomplished by eight o'clock p. m.

On the 6th the regiment marched with the Brigade to Vidalia, crossed the river and arrived in this camp at five o'clock p. m. The march was made without loss or incident worthy of special note. The officers and men of my command acquitted themselves as good soldiers throughout.

I am, Captain, very Respectfully,

B. DORNBLASER,
Col. Commanding Regiment.

58

The regiment immediately resumed its usual routine of camp and picket duty, interspersed with prize inspections and drills, together with occassional reviews by our commanding General and distinguished military visitors, which made our stay at the beautiful city of Natchez both pleasant and profitable.

On the 10th of November the regiment embarked for Vicksburg, whore we arrived on the evening of the llth; disembarked and bivouacked on the levee for the night and the next day located our camp near the Vicksburg cemetery. We had to occupy old camps, covered with all kinds of filth and rubbish, and only sufficiently large to accomodate a half a regiment comfortably. However, our stay in this camp, fortunately, was not of long duration.

On the 28th of November we moved camp to Camp Cowan, near Clear Creek, nine miles from Vicksburg. Here the construction of comfortable log barracks was immediately commenced and soon completed, making it one of the most pleasant and comfortable camps it has ever been our good fortune to occupy.

About the time our barracks were completed General Orders No. 191, A. G. O., Washington, D. C., relating to re-enlisting Veteran Volunteers was received. Vigerous measures were at once adopted by the officers of the regiment to reenlist the same as a veteran regiment. The enlisted men came forward with great unanimity and promptness. On the 4th of January, 1864, three-fourths of the regiment was mustered into the service of the United States for three years or during the war, by Lieut. C. W. G. Hyde, A. C. M., 4th Division, 17th Army Corps, and on the tenth of January Gen. McPherson ordered the regiment to proceed to Vicksburg and embark on the Steamer "Planet," then awaiting us.

On the evening of the llth the regiment was paid by Major Stewart on board of the boat, and the next day at nine and a half o'clock a. m., the regiment, numbering twenty officers and three hundred and thirty-four enlisted men, left Vicksburg for the North to enjoy a thirty days' furlough and to fill up the regiment if possible.

The river as far up as Napoleon, Arkansas, was full of floating ice, which greatly impeded our progress. We passed Napoleon at Six o'clock a. m. of the 15th, Helena at two o'clock and fifteen minutes on the 16th, arriving at Memphis on the same evening at nine o'clock. Left Memphis on the 17th at six o'clock p. m., and arrived at Cairo, Illinois, on the 20th at 11 o'clock a. m. Col. Dornblaser at once telegraphed to Col. Allen C. Fuller, Adjutant General, at Springfield, Illinois, who ordered us to proceed direct to Freeport, Illinois, as our place of rendezvous.

By reason of want of railroad transportation, the regiment was obliged to remain on the boat until noon of the 22d, when it proceeded by special train on the Illinois Central R. R. to Freeport, Illinois, where it arrived at half past twelve

59

o'clock p. m. on the 23d of January. The citizens of Freeport and vicinity gave the regiment a most hearty and enthusiastic reception, which will ever be remembered gratefully by every officer and soldier in the 46th.

After marching through some of the principal streets of the city, and listening to some eloquent welcoming speeches, the regiment stacked arms in the streets and entered Plymouth Hall, where a most sumptuous repast awaited them, prepared by the fair ladies of Freeport and vicinity. When the boys appetites were appeased they again fell into line and marched to the barracks on the fair ground one mile west of the city.

Adjutant Woodbury had gone direct to Springfield from Cairo to procure the furloughs for the men. He arrived at Freeport on the 26th and on the 27th the whole regiment was furloughed for thirty days, when it would again assemble at Camp Freeport.

Recruiting stations were established and recruiting officers appointed in Lee, Ogle, Whiteside and Stephenson Counties, and the work of filling up the regiment vigorously commenced with flattering prospects of success.

The regiment has thus far made a name for itself of which it feels proud, and the noble State in which it in part represents has never been dishonored by it. When it again returns to the field with full ranks, it will doubtless add still brighter lustre to its name, and continue as heretofore to be an honor to the State.

62

Part Second.

63

From the 27th of January till the 1st of March, the officers and men of the regiment vied with each other in laudable efforts to fill up the same. The nine old companies were mostly filled up, and Capt. Crane of Freeport, Illinois, had recruited and organized a new company ("D,") for the regiment by authority of the War Department.

On the 2d day of March the regiment left Freeport with an aggregate of 987 men, and proceeded to Cairo, Illinois, by rail, thence to Vicksburg, Miss., by boat; thence to Camp Hebron, ten miles east from Vicksburg, and re-joined the 2d Brigade 4th Division, 17th Army Corps. From March 10th until April 5th, the regiment was vigorously drilled and fitted for active service in the field. On the latter date the Brigade marched to Big Black Bridge, twelve miles east from Vicksburg, and reported to Brig. Gen. E. S. Dennis, commanding. April 25th the regiment moved by rail to Vicksburg, and encamped near Battery Ransom, northeast of the city, doing garrison duty. May 4th we started on an expedition to Benton and Yazoo City, Miss., commanded by Brig. Gen. John McArthur, and returned to camp at Vicksburg on the 21st of May.

REPORT OF THE EXPEDITION.

HEADQ'RS 1ST BRIGADE YAZOO EXPEDITION,
VICKSBUKG, Miss, May 22d, 1864.

CAPTAIN W. F. RANDALL:

Assistant Adjutant General.

Captain: — I have the honor to submit the following report of the part taken by this Brigade in the Yazoo expedition:

At five o'clock a. m. of the 4th inst., the 1st Brigade, consisting of the 46th Illinois Infantry, Lieut. Col. John J. Jones commanding, and the 76th Illinois Infantry, Col. Samuel T. Busey commanding, left camp and proceeded via Jackson road to Hebron. Mechanicsville and Benton, which we reached on the 7th. The enemy seemed disposed to dispute our possession of the place. The 1st Brigade marching in the rear was ordered up, leaving two companies with the train, and formed by your order in a field east of the town and in the rear of the 124th Illinois Infantry of the 2d Brigade. The enemy, however, soon fled before our advance and left our troops in quiet possession of the place.

On the morning of the 8th General McArthur went to Yazoo city to communicate with General Slocum at Vicksburg, leaving me in command during his absence. At about

64

two o'clock p. m. of the 9th, a scout reported the enemy advancing in large force on the Lexington road. I at once formed my Brigade and Boltons Battery on that road and requested Col. Coats of the 2d Brigade to form it on the Canton road, which was promptly done. Major Mumford with his 5th Illinois Cavalry dismounted, passed around my left, deployed as skirmishers and drove the enemy across to the old Lexington road, from which a few well directed shots from Bolton's Battery drove them pell mell into the timber beyond the field. Major Cook of the 3d U. S. Cavalry, (colored) with a portion of his command, also drove to the shelter of the woods a small force of the enemy who were advancing via Pickett's plantation towards the right of my Brigade. After posting a strong picket, I ordered the troops to camp.

On the morning of the 12th, I was ordered by General McArthur to remain at Benton to guard the approaches by the Lexington road with the 1st Brigade and one section of Bolton's Battery, whilst he with the other troops went to Moore's Ferry, on the Big Black, via the Canton road, on a reconnoisance, returning the same day. At five o'clock a. m. on the 13th, the expedition started for Vaughan's Station on the Mississippi Central Railroad, the 1st Brigade in the advance. The cavalry advance encountered the enemy at Luce's plantation, five miles southeast from Benton. I ordered the 76th Illinois forward to support a section of artillery commanded by Lieut. Nichols, who, together with a line of skirmishers from the 76th Illinois Infantry, drove the enemy from their position. The column then moved forward in its regular order of march along the road about one and a half miles, when the enemy was again found posted in a strong position with three pieces of artillery. I at once pushed my Brigade forward to an open field, forming the 76th on the left and the 46th Illinois Infantry on the right of the road, throwing forward two companies each as skirmishers, while at the same time Lieut. Nichols, with a section of artillery posted on the right of the road near the timber, opened a vigorous and well directed fire upon the rebels' battery, which was soon silenced and compelled to retreat. I then moved forward in line of battle with skirmishers well advanced — expecting to encounter the enemy at any moment — fully a mile to the plantation houses where I halted to await orders. The General commanding, finding the enemy gone, permitted the troops to rest and refresh themselves after their weary march.

After a halt of an hour and a half, the column again moved forward to within two miles of Vaughan's Station and encamped for the night, the enemy making but a feeble resistance to our advance. On the 14th we moved via Decenville to Benton, and on the 15th to Yazoo City, where we remained until the morning of the 18th, when we proceeded via Liverpool, Sartatia and Haine's Bluffs to camp at Vicksburg,

65

where we arrived at ten o'clock a. m., having marched over two hundred miles.

The only casualty I have to report in my command, is that of Sergeant Eells, company "D," 46th Illinois Infantry, who was killed on the morning of the 14th while acting as a scout, for which he was well suited, and in which capacity he had rendered much valuable service.

Although the march was a long one and rendered wearisome by the heat and dust, but very few complaints were heard, and whenever a fight was expected every man was found in his place ready and eager for the fray.

The officers of this command, including my personal staff, are entitled to great praise for the able and prompt discharge of every duty devolving upon them.

I have the honor to be, Sir,

Very Respectfully, your Obe't Serv't,

B. DORNBLASER,
Colonel Commanding Brigade.

The regiment remained quietly in camp, drilling and performing picket and camp duty until the 1st of July, when it went out with another expedition, commanded by Major General Slocum.

REPORT OF THE JACKSON EXPEDITION.

HEADQUARTERS 2ND BRIG. 4TH DIV., 17TH A. C.,
VICKSBURG, Miss., July 13, 1865.

CAPT. W. E. KUHN.

A. A. A. Gen'l, 1st Div., 17th A. C.

Captain: — I have the honor to submit the following report of the part taken by this Brigade in the late expedition to Jackson, Miss., and return.

In compliance with orders from Brig. Gen. E. S. Dennis, commanding 1st Division, the Brigade consisting of the 46th Illinois Infantry, Lieutenant Col. Jones commanding, and the 76th Illinois Infantry, Col. Samuel T. Busey commanding, left camp at 3 A. M. on 1st instant, and proceeded to Big Black Bridge, where we bad to await supplies and the building of a pontoon bridge across Big Black. Left Big Black on the morning of the third, and reached Clinton on the 4th inst. at noon, meeting with but little opposition from the enemy. During the afternoon quite a large force of rebels took a position about one and a half miles east of Clinton, on the Jackson road, and made several sallies on the pickets.

Early on the morning of the 5th inst., the enemy was encountered by the advance, and driven back to within three

66

and a half miles of Jackson, when they made a stand, using several pieces of artillery with great skill and accuracy. The 76th and five companies of the 11th Illinois Infantry guarded the train. Col. Coates moved his Brigade by a circuitous route to the left to gain the enemies flank. At the same time, by Gen. Slocum's order, I moved the 46th and four pieces of artillery commanded by Lieut. Moore through a thick belt of timber, on the left of the Jackson road, thereby gaining a commanding position, and by a few well directed shots from the Battery, drove what was left of the enemy, from the ground. I advanced with the force at my command and occupied the rebel position without further opposition. After resting several hours to enable the other troops to come up, the Brigade marched into Jackson in splendid order and encamped on the south side of the city.

At four P. M. of the 6th, the troops left Jackson on the same road they came; the cavalry in advance followed by this Brigade. Near the Junction of the Clinton and Canton roads, three miles from Jackson, and near where the enemy was posted the day before, they were discovered advancing in heavy force, evidently with the intention of gaining a position to prevent us leaving by this route. Major Mumford with his cavalry attacked them with great spirit, and held them in chock until this Brigade could be brought up to his support. Forming the 46th Illinois Infantry on the right of the Canton road, and the 76th Illinois Infantry on the left, with Lieut. Nichols' section of Artillery in the center, I advanced under a heavy fire about a half a mile. Here Lt. Nichols posted his section, supported by the 76th and opened a vigorous fire upon the enemy; while the 46th moved forward and took a position on a hill farther in advance, and within short range of the enemy's line. A brisk fire was kept up on both sides until darkness closed the work. During the engagement Capt. Clingman of A Co., 46th Illinois Infantry, was severely wounded through the left arm. Lieut. Moore made repeated attempts to plant his section of Artillery in advance near the 46th, but found every prominent point so completely commanded by the sharp-shooters, that he was compelled reluctantly to withdraw. After posting a strong picket, I ordered the Brigade back to a less exposed position and encamped for the night.

Next morning at four o'clock, by order of Major Gen. Slocum I moved the Brigade across a field in a North westerly direction to take possession of a house held by the enemy on the previous evening, to enable our train to pass out on the Clinton road. The leading Regiment, the 76th Illinois, had advanced but a short distance beyond our position of the previous evening when it was brought to a stand by a heavy force of the enemy strongly posted in a ditch behind a hedge, from whence they poured into our ranks a murderous fire. Finding that the enemy's front extended beyond either flank, I formed the 46th on the right of the 76th and advanced a

67

line of skirmishers along ray whole front. In this position with Lieut. Moore's section of Artillery in rear of the 76th Illinois Infantry, the Brigade kept the enemy fully engaged over two hours, until the train had safely passed.

The 8th Illinois Infantry, posted a short distance on the left of this Brigade received orders and had moved out to follow the train before I had received a similar order, which enabled the enemy to throw a large force on our left. The 76th moved off by the left flank under shelter of a rail fence which at the same time concealed the enemy. With great presence of mind, Lieut. Col. C. C. Jones of the 76th Illinois Infantry ordered his men to fire on them as soon as their position was discovered, and drove them back in confusion. The 46th changed its front and charged across the field under a heavy fire of artillery and musketry to the shelter of the woods, and then marched out upon the road to the next hill, where they were again vigorously shelled by the enemy. The 76th after repulsing the enemy moved directly to the road exposed to heavy fire, and soon after joined the Brigade.

The column moved forward with but little further opposition, until within about two miles of Clinton, where the enemy charged our rear and were repulsed with great loss, by the llth Illinois Infantry, commanded by Capt. Vore and Lieut. More's section of Artillery. The 46th was ordered to support the llth, but reached the ground only in time to fire a volley after the retreating foe. The 46th Illinois then relieved the llth as rear guard, which position it held alternately with the 76th and 8th Illinois Infantry during the day. The enemy were seen several times during the day drawn up in line, but they evidently thought "discretion the better part of valor," and wisely kept out of range.

We arrived in camp at Vicksburg on the 9th without further annoyance.

It is with pride and pleasure that I refer to the conduct of the officers and soldiers of my command, many of whom were for the first time under fire. Not one left the ranks or flinched from duty during the engagement, unless compelled to do so from wounds or exhaustion. It is enough to say of them that every man did his whole duty. The field and line officers wore all at their posts and did their duty so well, that a few cannot be mentioned without doing manifest injury to the others.

To Lieut. Col. Sheetz and his noble regiment, the 8th Illinois Infantry, I am under great obligations for relieving my regiments as rear guards, after they had become so completely exhausted from long continued fighting and marching as to be almost unable to proceed further. Lieuts. Moore and Nichols of Bolton's Battery are deserving of much credit for the able manner in which they handled, their respectixe sections while with this Brigade.

Of my personal staff, Lieuts. Woodbury, Arnold, Hughes and Seizicks, 1 cannot speak in too high terms of praise.

68

Prompt in the discharge of every duty, fearless of danger, they communicated every order with such coolness and precision that they could not fail to be understood.

The list of casualties in this Brigade has been forwarded.

Very Respectfully your Obe't Servt.,

B. DORNBLASER,
Colonel Commanding Brigade,

The casualties in the regiment were as follows, viz: Killed, three; wounded, thirty-six; captured, one; missing, three; total loss, forty-five. Our wounded received but little care until our arrival at Big Black. Here their wounds were carefully dressed and every attention possible given to them. During the night of the 8th of July the sick and wounded were removed to the hospital at Vicksburg, and on the 9th the troops marched to their camps in the city.

The wounded of the command that fell into the hands of the enemy were very kindly treated, so much so that it was spoken often the highest terms of praise by the wounded men and as soon as they were able an amicable exchange of prisoners was appointed. The ceremoney of exchange took place just outside the old fortifications of the city and was the occasion of much good feeling among the prisoners.

July 21st Maj. Gen. Blair's General Order No. 5 was received, organizing the 1st Division, 17th Army Corps, the 2d Brigade of which was composed of the 11th, 46th and 76th regiments of Illinois Infantry, and Col. Dornblaser of the 46th placed in command.

July 29th the 46th, together with the 76th Illinois Infantry, embarked on board the Steamer "Adams" and proceeded down the Mississippi river to Morganza Bend, La. The Division encamped on the river bank and constructed shades and arbors for shelter from the burning sun. Drill and picket, was the order, the latter of which was a very necessary as well as a rather delicate duty at times, from the fact that the enemy made frequent raids upon our picket lines from their camps on the Atchafalaya.

On the night of the 8th of August, Lieut. Col. Jones and two hundred men of the 46th went out on a scout and captured twelve gay and festive rebels who, not dreaming of danger, fell asleep and into the hands of the blue coats, and were brought into camp on the 9th.

On the 13th of August, General Canby's order No. 93 was promulgated, assigning the regiment to the 1st Brigade, 2d Division, 19th Army Corps. The Brigade to consist of the 8th, llth, 46th and 76th regiments of Illinois infantry, and the 7th and 30th Missouri Infantry, and to be commanded by Col. B. Dornblaser of the 46th Illinois Infantry, General Dennis to command the Division, and General Reynolds the Corps.

69

Lieut. I. A. Arnold and Lieut. H. H. Woodbury were placed on the Brigade staff, the former as A. A. Q. M. and the latter A. A. A. Gen.

The Division was ordered to embark on transports on the 23d of August and proceed to Port Hudson, La., where it arrived on the morning of the 24th. See report.

HEADQUARTERS 1ST BRIG. 2D Div., 19TH A. C.
MORGANZA, LA., August 29th, 1864.

CAPTAIN W. E. KUHN,

A. A. A. Gen. 2d Div., 19th Army Corps.

Captain: — I have the honor to report that in compliance with orders, this Brigade embarked on Steamers on the night of the 23d just., and proceeded to Port Hudson, La., where it disembarked. On the evening of the 24th instant, at five o'clock p. m., the column moved out in the direction of Clinton, La., the 1st Brigade in advance, supplied with five days rations and one ammunition wagon to each regiment. The command marched all night, only resting at intervals to enable the column to close up, and arrived at Clinton at noon of the 25th. Small scouting parties of the enemy only were encountered, who fled at our approach.

The troops rested until four o'clock p. m. of the 26th, when the return march was commenced, arriving at Port Hudson on the morning of the 28th and Morganza on the morning of the 29th.

Port Hudson is distant twenty-five miles from here, and from Port Hudson to Clinton the same. The march was a very hard one and the losses sustained by the Brigade were caused principally by men becoming exhausted by the way and being captured by the enemy, who followed in our rear. The following are the losses of the Brigade: llth Illinois, three missing; 46th Illinois, two missing; 76th Illinois, one missing ; 30th Missouri, two missing.

Respectfully your Obed't. Serv't.

B. BORNBLASER,
Colonel Commanding Brigade.

Orders were received September 2d to embark early on the morning of the 3d, with all the camp and garrison equippage of the command. Left Morganza at four a. m. on the 4th; proceeded up the river and arrived at the mouth of White River, Ark., without incident of note, on the 8th of September, and went into camp on a large cotton plantation. The ground was speedily cleared of the luxuriant cotton plant and the camp fitted up in splendid style.

On the 13th of September, Chaplain Lewis started with the

70

non-veterans of A, B and C, whose term, of service had expired. They were to proceed to Springfield, Illinois, to be mustered out of service.

The only incident worthy of note occurring during the stay of the regiment at the Mouth of White River, was a tremendous storm of wind and rain on the night of the 28th, which leveled every tent and flooded the camp with water. The sudden waking up of over two thousand men to find their frail shelters swept away and themselves drenched to the skin by the pouring rain, caused a conglomeration of the most hideous and ludricious sounds ever heard or made by man. While some were making frantic yet vain efforts to hold up their tents against the storm, others — and many officers of both high and low degree — could be seen by the vivid lightning's glare, "scudding, under bare poles" from one demolished shelter to another, doomed to a similar fate. A company of men in one portion of the camp would hurrah for McClellan which would be answered from another portion by the shout of a whole regiment for Lincoln. A cheer for Valandigham or Jeff Davis would be answered by a whole Brigade with curses and groans. Slang phrases, such as "here's your mule," &c., &c., were the common utterances of those in busy search of lost clothing, tents and baggage. The incidents of the night furnished a rich theme for ludicrous comment and laughter, which served to while away many tedious hours in camp.

A short distance from camp were numerous ponds or lakes containing large quantities of fine fish, the catching of which furnished much sport. The modus operandi of catching them, was novel. Twenty or thirty soldiers would divest themselves of their clothing, arm themselves with clubs of about four feet in length, form a skirmish line across one end of the lake and advance, beating, the water and thus drive the fish before them into the shallow water at the other end of the lake, then woe to the unlucky fish that would show his head, his fate would be sure to be sealed by a blow from a club. In the excitement of the chase many a blow aimed at the head of a fish would descend on the head or back of some unlucky biped of an entirely different species. Such accidents would call forth peals of laughter and the injured party would pass it off in the most philosophical good humor.

On the 6th of October the 1st Brigade, 3d Division, 19th Army Corps, and the 46th Illinois Infantry, all under the command of Lieut. Col. Jones of the 46th, were ordered to embark, to proceed to Duvall's Bluff, Arkansas. They left the mouth of White River at sunrise, October 7th, and arrived at Duvall's Bluff on the 9th. The regiment went into camp south of the Landing, and commenced building log barracks which they soon completed. The regiment was highly complimented by General C. O. Andrews commanding Post, for its skill and energy in building such neat and comfortable barracks in so short a time. At this place the regiment

71

also did much fatigue duty on the fortifications, which were extensive and incomplete. The wot weather and peculiar character of the soil made their duty very arduous. As an offset, for this, however, the large number of deer on the prairies near by afforded profitable amusement for the sportsmen of the command, who brought in five, or six fine deer every day they went out, and one day fourteen were killed and brought into the regiment.

The fine barracks built by the regiment had to be given up, as orders were received on the 27th of November to embark on transports for Memphis, Tenn. Left Duvall's Bluff at one o'clock p. m., of the 28th, and arrived at the mouth of White River at three o'clock, p. m. of the 29th, and Memphis on the 1st of December at six o'clock, p. m.

While coming down White River, Arkansas, on the 28th a party of guerillas fired on the boat and wounded three men, none severely. The fire was quickly returned by the regiment. On the same night Thomas Walbridge, a Private of company "K," fell overboard and was drowned. His body could not be recovered.

At Memphis the regiment went into camp on the Pigeon Roost road, just east of the city. While at this camp all the non-veteran soldiers of H. E. I. K. and F. were mustered out of the service, together with Major McCracken, Captain Hughes, Stewart, Wakefield, Reitzell, and Lieutenants Terry, Shaw and McKibbon.

The command suffered here from cold by reason of shelter, tents and scarcity of timber and fuel. The tents were no protection against cold, and the want of timber or lumber prevented the men from building comfortable huts or barracks.

On the 12th of December orders from General Canby were received re-organizing the troops of the 19th array corps into the Reserve Corps, Military Division of West Mississippi, The 2d Brigade, which was composed of the 8th, 11th, 46th and 76th regiments of Illinois Infantry, and the 23d Wisconsin and 30th Missouri regiments Infantry, was commanded by Brig. Gen. E. S. Dennis.

Early on the morning of the 21st of December an expedition started out, commanded by Brig. Gen. Lawler, going in the direction of La Grange, Tenn. The 8th, 11th and 46th Illinois Infantry, commanded by Colonel Dornblaser of the 46th, was accompanied by two other small brigades and marched the first day to Germantown, second to Moscow, and third to Wolf River near Moscow, Tenn., where we remained until early on the morning of the 26th of December, when the return march to Memphis was commenced. Col. Kent's Brigade marched to Collierville and encamped. Col. Dornblaser's Brigade encamped three miles west of Colliersville on the Bailey plantation, and Col. Green's Brigade at Germantown and White's Station. This disposition of troops was made with a view to guard the railroad, which bad been repaired from Memphis to Colliersville, against the numerous

72

bands of guerilla parties prowling through this section of the country.

On the 31st of December the troops were all brought to Memphis by rail and ordered to be ready to embark without delay.

The 46th, with the exception of four companies that were put aboard the "Autocrat," embarked on the Steamer "Marble City," on the morning of the 2d of January, 1865, and proceeded to Kennerville, La., twenty-five miles from New Orleans by water, and disembarked. The camp at this place was protected from overflow by the levee, but the rainy season made it exceedingly muddy. It was a complete "stick-in-the-mud" camp.

The regiment marched to Lakeport en Lake Pontchartrain on the 4th of February, and embarked on the Steamers "Planter" and "Alabama" on the 7th and 8th of February, and proceeded to Fort Gaincs, Dauphin Island, Ala., at which place we arrived and went into camp on the 9th and 10th of February. While the camp at Kennerville, La., was pure mud, at this place it was pure white sand. However, the discomforts of the camp were fully neutralized by the pleasure and profit afforded catching and eating oysters, which were found in great abundance in the bay close by.

Col. Dornblaser having been home on a leave of absence, returned to the regiment on the first of March, bringing with him one hundred and sixty recruits, filling up the regiment to nine hundred and twenty-two men, aggregate strength. This made the 46th one of the largest regiments in the command.

While here the Reserve Corps was re-organized and called the 13th army corps, to be commanded by Major General Gordon Granger. The 8th, 1lth and 46th Illinois Infantry, comprised the 2d Brigade of the 1st Division, and Gen. E. S. Dennis assigned to the command of the same. Brig. Gen. James C. Veatch commanded the Division.

On the 17th of March all the surplus baggage, camp and garrison equlppage was turned in to the Post Quartermaster and the troops fitted for an active land campaign. The Brigade was transferred to the opposite side of Mobile Bay the same evening, and commenced its march on Mobile early on the morning of the 18th. On the 20th we reached Oyster Bay where Gen. Benton's Division of the 13th Army Corps were constructing corduroy causeways through the swamps. Our Division was detailed until the morning of the 22d of March to enable Benton's Division to get ahead. On the night of the 20th a tremendous rainstorm caused the temporary bridges built to be washed away, making it necessary to reconstruct them. The work was arduous and disagreeable, but was accomplished without unnecessary grumbling. In consequence of the great difficulty of getting the train through the deep sand and mud and over the rough cordaroys, the column did not reach the vicinity of Spanish Fort,

73

the first rebel stronghold on our line of march — until the evening of the 21st of March. Early on the morning of the 22d the Fort was invested, much to the surprise of the rebels, as they did not deem it possible for us to advance so rapidly over the obstacles we had to encounter.

After the Fort was invested, the 46th was ordered to guard the approaches from the rear, as it was reported that the enemy had a large force of cavalry in that direction threatening an attack.

On the 31st of March the 1st Division, 13th Army Corps, took charge of a supply train to Gen. Steele's command near Blakely, Ala. The 46th was left in charge of the baggage train of the Division until the 4th of April, when it moved with the train and joined the Division near Sibley's Mills, east of Blakely.

During the siege of Blakely the 1st Division, 13th Army Corps occupied a frontline of about three-fourths of a mile in extent between Andrews Division of the 13th Army Corps and Garrard's Division of the 16th Army Corps, which required but from two to three regiments to fill the space, consequently the troops in front would bo daily relieved by others. On the evening of the 5th of April, the 46th Illinois Infantry was ordered to relieve the 8th Illinois Infantry in the trenches, and advance the line during the night and construct a new line of works. Companies G and B were deployed as skirmishers and sent forward early in the evening to establish a line twenty-five yards in advance on the right, and one hundred on the loft. The position was gained with but little opposition and the work of throwing up earthworks vigorously commenced. The rebel sharpshooters constantly kept stimulating our working parties to renewed efforts by sending minnie balls whistling over every portion of the line at intervals uncomfortably short. At about two o'clock a. m. of the 6th of April, the enemy made a vigorous attack upon our lines with a view to dislodge our working parties, but were handsomely repulsed. In this action Private Andrew Hess of company "B" was mortally wounded by a fragment of a shell. This was our only casualty, owing to the completeness of our defenses.

On the 8th of April, Spanish Fort was captured, and on the evening of the 9th Fort Blakely was charged and taken also. In this action the 8th Illinois as skirmishers, followed by the 11th and 46th Illinois as supports were amount he first to reach the Fort, but were prevented from following up and capturing their share of prisoners by reason of an order to withdraw to the outside of the works as soon as they had entered and formed inside of the same, thus enabling Gerard's Division to sweep down to the Bay in front of our Brigade and capture the prisoners. After securing these, and the arms, cannon and trophies, the Brigade marched to its camp. April 10th the Division marched four miles in the direction of the Alabama River and made preparations for a march

74

into the interior, but on the 11th of April news of the probable evacuation of Mobile was received, in consequence of which the troops were marched back to Stark's Landing during the night, and embarked at daylight on the morning of the 12th of April. At nine o'clock a. m., the fleet sailed from the landing in the direction of Mobile, and at eleven o'clock a. m. arrived at the Shell Road Landing, five miles below the city. The city authorities surrendered the place and its defenses to the Army and Navy of the United States on the 12th of April, and the city was occupied by the troops on the same day.

The regiment went into camp in the western limits of the city, where a comfortable camp was soon fitted up.

On the 16th of April the glorious tidings of Lee's surrender to General Grant was confirmed and greeted with shouts of joy as the forerunner of the speedy overthrow of the entire rebellion. But the echoing sounds of exultation had not yet died away, when on the 20th the horrible news of the assassination of President Lincoln burst upon us like a clap of thunder from a clear sky, causing our rejoicing to be turned to bitter grief.

April 21st the 11th and 46th regiments Illinois Infantry marched to Whistler seven miles out and returned, in consequence of a report that a rebel force was threatening the place, which proved untrue.

The time of the Regiment was principally taken up with drill and inspections while in this camp, and never did it present a more formidable and soldierly appearance since its first appearance, and as such received many compliments.

On the eighth of May, Gen. Dick Taylor surrendered his army to Gen. Canby, who at once Bent commissioners to Meridian, Columbus, Jackson and other prominent points to parole the men and receive the public property.

Major Chase, Paymaster U. S. A., paid the Regiment on the 11th and 12th of May, up to February 28, 1865. On the morning of the 13th the Regiment left Mobile on the cars for Meridian, Miss., where it arrived on the 14th. Part of the Regiment was at once sent to Columbus, Macon, Gainesville, Gainesville Junction and Lauderdale Springs, Miss., to take charge of public property. The Regiment was relieved by troops from the 16th A. C. and Gen. Grierson's command, and ordered to Mobile, where it arrived in detachments from the 18th until the 21st of May, and occupied its old camp. Col. Dornblaser of the 46th was again assigned to the command of the 2d Brigade on the 24th of May, and on the 27th the 1st and 2d Brigades of the Division embarked on steamers for New Orleans. The 46th went aboard the "J. H. Groesbeck," and arrived without accident to Hickox Landing at the Lake end and of the New Orleans Shell Road on the 28th of May, and at once disembarked and marched to the race track near the "Halfway House," where it went into camp. On the 30th of May the troops embarked at

75

New Orleans to proceed to Alexandria, Natchitochee and Shreveport on Red River, to receive the surrender of Kirby Smith's Trans-Mississippi rebel army. Landed at Shreveport, La., on the 8th of June, after one of the most tedious and disagreeable voyages imaginable. The crowded condition of the boats and extreme heat of the weather, caused much discomfort and sickness.

June 19th the Regiment embarked, on steamer Peerless and proceeded to Grand Ecore, La., to relieve the 21st Iowa Infantry on duty at Natchitoches, Salubrity Springs and Grand Ecore. Gen. Taylor's army was encamped at Salubrity Springs, prior to his march to the Rio Grande in 1846. The Regiment performed garrison duty here until November 20th, when it marched via Pleasant Hill and Mansfield, La., to Shreveport. Major Clingman with companies E and G of the 46th Illinois, and Co. A of the 19th Pa. Cavalry went to Marshall, Texas, to relieve the 8th Illinois Infantry on duty there.

The garrison of Shreveport consisted of eight companies of the 46th Illinois, the 80th U. S. Colored Infantry and company C, 19th Pa. Cavalry. On the 27th of December, Gen. Canby's special order No. 140 was received ordering the Regiment to proceed to Baton Rouge, La., and Springfield, Illinois, for muster out and final discharge. The low stage of water in Red River made it impossible for the whole Regiment to embark on one boat, hence it left Shreveport on various steamers from the 1st to the 4th of January, 1866; and arrived at Baton Rouge on the 10th of January. As soon as the Regiment was comfortably situated in camp the whole available clerical force of the same was put to work making up muster out rolls. On the 20th of January the Regiment was mustered out and at once embarked on steamer Lady Gay for Cairo, arriving at that place on the 25th, thence proceeded by Railroad to Camp Butler, Illinois, where it arrived on the evening of the 27th. Through the usual energy of the officers of the Regiment, and the extreme kindness and courtesy of Major Cleghorn, A. A. G., Col. Bridgman and Major Grover, Paymasters, the Regiment received its final pay and discharge on the 1st of February, after a stay in camp of only five days. An extra train was in readiness to convey the men to Decatur, Illinois, in time for the train North on the Central Road, of which they eagerly took advantage in order to reach their several homes with the least delay.

Thus closes the Record of the 46th Illinois Veteran Volunteer Infantry. Its organization has been kept up nearly four and a half years. Over seventeen hundred men have been members of it, and its line of march and travel has extended over ten thousand miles.

While with thankful hearts we acknowledge the preservation of our health and lives to enable us to return to and enjoy our homes and friends, let us ever hold in kind

76

remembrance those of our companions who lost their lives in the great contest, and whose graves can be found from the Ohio to the Gulf.

As our record as a Regiment has been bright and honorable, let each and all resolve to perpetuate that record by individual virtue and honesty as citizens, that none may descend to the grave "unhonored and unsung."

To our friends at home, whose loving eyes were ever following us, whose prayers constantly ascended to the throne of God for our welfare, and who stood ready with outstretched arms to welcome us to our homes, let us ever be grateful.
