Brief History


The 7th Regiment, Illinois Cavalry was organized at Cairo, Illinois, July 25, 1861.
 It mustered out July 9, 1865.[1]


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.
