13th Illinois Infantry-- Part 5: Where They Reenlisted

Earlier, I mentioned that I didn't know where any of the men from the 13th reenlisted, if they did.

Some of them are shown as having reenlisted, but in other regiments.  The 13th Illinois ceased to exist.

I went through the roster of Company F, primarily consisting of men from DeKalb County, Illinois.  Most of them were from Sycamore and evidently, most did not reenlist and that was the end of the company and regiment.

However, a few did re-enlist and were then classified as Veterans.

I came across four men from Sycamore who were sent to Company I, 56th Illinois.
