A Short History of the 94th Illinois Infantry Regiment

Of interest, the Illinois regiment raised where I live in McHenry County, Illinois, was the 95th.  A quick look at engagements and service shows both were at Vicksburg and Mobile.

The 94th Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment was organized in McLean County and mustered into service on August 20, 1862.

It saw duty in Missouri, was at Vicksburg, service in Texas and Mobile Bay.

They were mustered out of service July 17, 1865.

During the war, the regiment lost 8 enlisted men to being killed or mortally wounded.  Another 4 officers and 162 enlisted died of disease.
