56th Illinois's Co. I: What Kind of a Company Was It?

I mentioned several of the 13th Illinois' veterans transferring to Company I of the 56th Illinois after their term of enlistment expired in 1864.  They were now classified as "Veterans."

Most of Company I's soldiers had transferred out of the company back in 1862, so it must have been a company in name only between then and the 13th Illinois' men transferring in.
