105th Illinois Volunteer Infantry-- Part 1: Service

Back on January 23rd, I was writing about Afton, Illinois, a town in DeKalb County, Illinois, that sent a lot of men off to the war.  Five of the men from Afton who gave their lives were all members of the 105th Illinois Volunteer Infantry.

I did some more research on the regiment.

From Illinois Genealogy Web.

Served in the Army of the Ohio from September 1862 to November 1862
Posted to Gallatin, Tennessee November 1862 to June 1863
Served in the Army of the Cumberland June 1863 to June 1865.

This regiment was made up of largely men from DeKalb and DuPage counties in Illinois.
