13th Illinois Infantry-- Part 3: At Chickasaw Bayou

The 13th was part of General Sherman's attack on Chickasaw Bayou in which the regiment's first colonel, John B. Wyman was killed on December 28, 1862.

They were also at the capture of Arkansas Post and the raid on Greenville, Mississippi

They were mustered out on June 18, 1864, after having served their three years (plus two months).

I have not been able to find out anything about whether some reenlisted and served in other units, but imagine they did.
