455 McHenry County Civil War Deaths

Donald V. Purn, is quite a Civil War researcher for all things and anything McHenry County, Illinois, in the war. Last week, I was fortunate enough to hear him give a talk on blacks from McHenry County serving in the United States Colored Troops as well as whites from the county who commanded the black troops. //// Most of the McHenry County deaths occurred with Illinois units, but there were deaths in the 3rd Colorado, 30th Indiana; 3rd, 15th and 32nd Iowa, 31st Massachusetts, 5th Michigan, and quite a few Wisconsin regiments: 4th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 13th, 20th, 22nd, 25th, 28th, 30th and 33rd. //// --Old Secesh
