=== <br>Companies in this Regiment with County of Origin ===
Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.<br>
<br>The following counties of origin are taken from the ''Adjutant General's Report'', found on the [http://civilwar.ilgenwebillinoisgenweb.netorg/reg_html/index.html Illinois Civil War Rosters] web site. Roster pages are from the same report found on the [http://www.archive.org/stream/reportofadjutant05illi1#page/n6/mode/1up Internet Archives] web site. The rosters show the men who served in each regiment, their residences, dates of enlistment and mustering out, and other remarks.
