Brief History

The 53rd Regiment, Illinois Infantry was organized at Ottawa, Illinois on January 1862. It mustered out on July 22, 1865 at Louisville, Kentucky.

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.
