pallid, and emaciated forms shattered by a gun-shot or shell. I tell
you my friends we must continue to pour down our sanitary supplies
for the comfort of those bleeding, suffering soldiers of our country,
whose well-being lies near the heart of all true men and women.
Who has not some father, brother or loved friend in our army ? Then
awake and think. What can you do ? Your hands, however tiny,
can work up some little item which will either do to send to our
soldier boys or will bring money at our soldier's fair. Come up
and do something while it is day, for night cometh when no man
can work. Everything in the shape of the useful, fancy or orna-
mental, vegetables, meats, machinery, and, in fact, anything that can
be invented, both natural and artificial, will be heartily received."

According to the above call a meeting was held at the court-house,
Aug. 6, 1864, to inaugurate measures for the holding of the Tazewell

Great eiforts were made to make this a grand affair. Committees
were appointed to canvass in the surrounding counties. Circulars
were sent out setting forth the great necessity of raising means for
the relief of the soldiers in Southern hospitals. A large building
was erected on Court street, Pekin, which had its various departments
under able management. The fair lasted three days and proved
quite remunerative, the proceeds being over $5,000.

Whenever a great battle or any other emergency made unusual
demands, appeals were made through the press and never in vain.
In looking through the files of county papers we find call after call
made by different societies during those trying times. As the war
progressed the care of soldier's families became an important part of
the work of soldier's aid societies.

Let us examine into one or two of the boxes sent by the Soldier's
Aid Society of Pekin and see what they contained. We give list of
articles packed in box Sept. 15, 1863, and sent to the army of the
Cumberland: Number sheets 2; shirts 17; drawers 17; handker-

When the boys in blue came home on a furlough they were
cordially welcomed, and the ladies prepared dinners for them and
made their stay happy and pleasant. AVhen they returned to the
tented fields they carried with them grateful recollections of the
efforts the ladies at home were making for their comfort.

lee's surrender. — Lincoln's assassination.

Our armies bravely contended until finally after four long years of
bloodshed and carnage the news was flashed over the wires that Lee
had surrendered. This joyful news reached this county Monday,
April 10, 1865, being within two days of four years from the time
the batteries were opened on Fort Sumter. On receiving the news
of the fall of Richmond the people were very jubilant over the suc-
cess of the Union forces. They assembled in all parts of the county
and had grand jubilees. At Pekin the people came together at the
public square and a procession was formed, headed by the band, and
paraded through the city. The streets were brilliantly illuminated.
Bonfires, rockets and music were seen and heard on every hand, it
was indeed a season of rejoicing, and well might it be, for what had
been endured, what had been suffered ?

Scarcely had the downfall of the Southern Confederacy been re-
ceived ere the sad news of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln
was flashed over the wires. On that beautiful April morning, five
days after the announcement of Lee's surrender, the people, joyful
over the near approach of the return of their loved ones from the
South, the sorrowing news of the President's death was announced.

Mr. Lincoln was bound to the people of this county with
stronger cords than simply being a good ruler. He had spent many
days here ; had many warm personal friends and it was like the loss
of a brother. Thev felt the loss keenly ; the tolling bells, the sym-



HISTORY OF TAZEWELL COUNTY. 349

pathetic dirges, interpreted not merely the grief of a people at the
loss of a president, but the sorrow of a community at the death of a
brother, a son, one who was closely akin to all. Meetings were held
and appropriate resolutions passed. Dwellings, stores, churches and
public buildings were draped and the flags which had been sent up
in moments of rejoicing, were taken down, draped, and sent up at
half-mast.

THE CLOSE.

The war ended aud peace restored, the Union preserved in its in-
teirritv, the sons of Tazewell who had volunteered their lives in
defense of their government, and who were spared to see the army
of the Union victorious, returned to their homes to receive grand
ovations and tributes of honor from friends and neighbors who had
eagerly and zealously followed them wherever the fortunes of war
called. Exchanging their soldiers' uniforms for citizens' dress, most
of them fell back to their old vocations, — on the farm, at the forge,
the bench, in the shop, and at whatever else their hands found to do.
Brave men are honorable alwavs, and no class of citizens are entitled
to greater respect than the volunteer soldiery of Tazewell county,
not alone because they were soldiers, but because in their associa-
tions with their fellow men their walk is upright, and their honesty
and character without reproach.

Their country first, {heir glory and their pride,
Land of their hopes, land where tlieir fathers died ;
When in the right, they'll keep their honor bright.
When in the wrong, they'll die to set it right.

No more fitting tribute to their patriotic valor can be offered the
brave men who went forth in defense of liberty and union, than a
full and complete record, so far as it is possible to make it, embracing
the names, the terms of enlistments, the battles in which they were
engaged, and all the minutiai of their military lives. It will be a
wreath of glory encircling every brow — a precious memento to
hand down to posterity, and one which each of them earned in de-
fense of their and our common country. There are, no doubt, some
men who, while they lived in Tazewell county, enlisted in other
counties and were never credited to this countv. While the names
of such properly belong here, and we would gladly give them did
we know them, yet the Adjutant-General's reports, the source of our



350



HISTORY OF TAZEWELL COUNTY.



information, gives their names as belonging to other counties. We
sent out thousands of circulars urging those who thus enlisted, or
their friends for them, if they were dead or had moved away, to
send us their name, company and regiment, and those who did so
will find their name properly recorded.

7th INFANTRY.

The 7th is claimed to be the first regiment organized in the State, under
the first call of the President for three months' troops. The 8th also claims
the same honor. The 7th was mustered in at Camp Yates, April 25, 1861 ;
was forwarded to Alton and thence to Mound City, where it remained during
its three months' service.

It was re-organized and mustered for three years service, July 25, 1861 ;
moved to Fort Holt, Kentucky, where it went into winter quarters; was with
the reconnoitering expedition under General Grant, in the rear of ColumVjus,

Fort Donelson, taking part in the siege and investment of that x^lju'e. At
DoneLson the regiment was commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Babcock; loss
3 killed, including the gallant Captain Mendell of Companj' I, and 19 wounded.

The 7th was engaged continually April 6th and 7th, at the battle of Shiloh,
losing 2 officers and 15 men killed, and 79 wounded.

At the battle of Corinth, October 3 and 4, 1862, the regiment was engaged
both days entire. Colonel Babcock commanding. Loss at Corinth, 2 officers
and 6 men killed, and 46 wounded, also 21 prisoners.

After the battle of Corinth, the 7th was engaged in scouting and guarding
railroads through Tennessee and Mississippi, taking part in a number of expe-
ditions and having some .some bri.sk skirmishes, capturing many prisoners, etc.

December 22, 1863, the regiment re-enlisted as veterans, and, January 7,
1864, started to Springfield, Illinois, for veteran furlough. It was mustered out
July 9, 1865, at Louisville, Kentucky; arrived at Camp Butler, July 12, 1865,
for final payment and discharge.

8tli IXFANTRY.

On the 25th daj' of April, 1861, the 8th Infantrj' was first organized for the
three months' service. Colonel Oglesby commanding. A contest for rank and
seniority arose between the Seventh and Eight, both being organized on the
same day. This contest was finally ended by according to Colonel Cook the
first number (Seven) as the number of his regiment, with the second rank as
colonel — Colonel Oglesby taking the second number for his regiment, with
the first rank as colonel.

During its three months' term of service it was stationed at Cairo, where,
at the end of said term, it was mustered out, and on July 25, 1861, was re-
organized for the three years' service.

The regiment was stationed at Cairo, Illinois, until October, 1861, when it
was ordered to Birds Point, Missouri, where it was stationed until February
2, 1862, with the exception of occasional excursions to Cape Girardeau, Norfolk
Mission and Paducha, Kentucky.

February 2, 1862, embarked for Tennessee river. On the 5th met the
enemy near Fort Henry, and drove them. On the 11th was in advance of
attack on Fort Donelson, under command of Lieutenan-Colonel Rhoads,
Colonel Oglesby commanding brigade. On the 15th the Eighth met the
enemy, who were attempting to cut their way out of the fort, and for three
hours and a half withstood the shock of the enemy, although suffering ter-
ribly. Its loss was 57 killed, 191 wounded, and 10 missing.

March 6th, proceeded to Pittsburg Landing, where the Eighth did gallant
service, being engaged in the hottest of the fight. Towards the close of the

second day, the regiment was ordered to take a rebel battery, which was
pouring a destructive fire into our ranks — the battery was charged and taken,
the gunners being killed at their posts. The regiment lost 26 killed, 95
wounded, and 11 missing.

It was engaged in the siege of Corinth, and after the evacuation, moved
to Jackson, Tennessee, thence to Lagrange. November 28th it pushed as far
as Water Valley into Mississippi, returning after a very hard march.

The regiment broke camp at Tallahatchee river, January 4, 1803, and
marched toward ^lemphis, where it arrived on the 19th of January, and
camped on the Hernando road. February 22d embarked for Lake Provi-
dence. April 12th moved to Milliken's Bend; on the 25th started with the
army, and passing through Richmond, struck the river at Perkins' Land-
ing, and crossed over on the night of the 30th. May 1, 18H3, commenced
the fight at Thompson's Hill, Captain Jones severely wounded. On the 12th
engaged the enemy near Raymond. In this battle the regiment did distin-
guished service, relieving the center at a most critical moment, and gallantly
(Iriving the enemy. The regiment lost a l)rave young ofhcer here in Captain
Frank Leeper, Company A, who fell while leading his men on to victory.
Participateil in the l)attle of Jackson, May 14th, and on the 10th fought at
Champion Hill. On the 18th crossed Big Black river, and on the following day
drove the enemy into his works at Vicksburg. On the 22d engaged in the
heroic assault on Fort Hill. August 21, 1863, under command of Lieutenant-
Colonel Josiah Sheets, marched to Monroe, returning September 3d.

The Eighth remained at Vicksburg until February 3, 1864, when it joined
in the Meridian campaign under General Sherman.

The regiment re-enlisted as veterans March 24, 1864, going to Camp But-
ler, Illinois, for veteran furlough. Was consolidated June 21, 1864.

Left Vicksburg July 1st, for Jackson, and, returning on the 6th, met the
enemy tiiree miles from Jackson, and skirmished till dark. On the following
day had a severe engagement, suffering a loss of 3 killed, 21 wounded, and 2
missing.

From July 29th to September 3d, engaged in the Morganzia expedition;
moved to ^lemphis, Tennessee, October 18th, where it remained with brief
intervals till January 1, 1865, when the Eighth left for New Orleans, where
they arrived on the 4th, and were stationed fifteen miles above the city.

On March 26th encamped near Spanish Fort and entrenched; engaged in
approaching the fort until the 30th, losing 1 killed and 3 wounded. Pro-
ceeded to rear of investments April 3d, and on the 9tli engaged in a charge on
the enemy's works, ami was the first to plant the flag on the works in her
vicinity. The Eighth lost in this charge 10 killed, and .■)4 woumled.

The regiment was mustered out May 4, 186(5, at Baton Rouge, Louisiana,
and arrived at Springfield for final payment and discharge May 13, 1866.
