Brief History

The 39th Regiment, Illinois Infantry was organized at Chicago, Illinois, and mustered in October 11, 1861.  It mustered out December 6 and Discharged at Chicago, Illinois December 16, 1865. [1]
 

For more information about the 39th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, see the following:

  • Wikipedia, (accessed 5 April 2011) article for 39th Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment.


Companies in this Regiment with County of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.

The following counties of origin are taken from the Adjutant General's Report, found on the Illinois Civil War Rosters web site. Roster pages are from the same report found on the Internet Archives web site. The rosters show the men who served in each regiment, their residences, dates of enlistment and mustering out, and other remarks.


The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database lists 2,770 men on its roster for this unit. Roster.
