the United States, at Peoria, on the 16th day of August, 18G1.

They left Peoria on the 23d day of September, 1861, for Benton Barracks,
where they received clothing, arms", etc., leaving for the seat of vftxr on the 9th
day of October, 1861.

The 47th was engaged at Farmington, Mississippi, on the 9th day of May,
in which they lost their lieutenant-colonel, Daniel L. Miles, who was killed
while bravelv leading his men. On the 28th of May the regiment participated
in an engagement near Corinth ; took part in the battle of Corinth October 3d
and 4th, where on the 3d fell the brave and honored Colonel W. A. Thrush,
while heroically leading his command in a charge. Loss in this engagement,
30 killed and over 100 wounded.

Thev were with General Grant on his expedition through central Missis-
sippi, and on the 14th day of May, 1863, participated in the liattle of Jackson,
Mississippi, which resulted in the capture of that place. Took part in the
charge on the enemy's works at Vicksburg, May 22d, losing 12 men killed
and a large number wounded; assisted in the defeat of the enemy at
Mechanicsville, Mississippi, thirty miles below Vicksburg.

The regiment was at the battle of Pleasant Hill, Louisiana, April 9, 1864,
arriving at Vicksburg May 22d, with General Smith's command, after a cam-
paign of nearly three months, in which they suffered almost unheard of
fatigue and privations, many men dying from hardships.

The 47th met and defeated General Marmaduke near Lake Chicat, in
which engagement they lost 11 killed and a number wounded, among the
latter was Major IVIiles, who received almost a fatal shot in the neck.

The original term of service having expired, they were ordered to Spring-
field, Illinois, where those who did not re-enlist as veterans, were mustered
out October 11, 1864.

The veterans and recruits of the regiment numbering 196 men, com-
manded bv Lieutenants Edward Bouham and Royal Olmstead, accompanied
General Mouer's expedition up White river to Brownsville, Arkansas, and
from there into Missouri after the rebel General Price's army, which was then
raiding the State.

The 47th as re-organized, was mustered out January 21, 1866, at Selma,
Alabama, and ordered to Springfield, Illinois, where it received final pay and
discharge.

HISTORY OF TAZEWELL COUNTY.



73rd INFANTRY.

The 7ord was organized at Camp Butler in August, '62, and soon became
part of Gen. Buell's army The 73rd took part in every Ijattle fought by the
army of the Cumberland, from Oct, 62. until the route of Gen. Hood's army at
Nashville.

No greater eulogy can be pronounced on the patrotism, bravery, and
heroic devotion to a sacred principle than that silent language of their dead,
speaking from the graves of every battle-tield where they poured out their
life's blood, at Perryville, Murfreesl^oro, Chickamaugo, Missionary Ridge,
through out mountain gorges of East Tennesee and in a succession of battles
from Chattanooga to the falls of Atlanta.

The 73rd had 2 majors and 2 adjutants killed, and nearly every officer of
the regiment wounded at some time — several, many times; but as to the
aggregate loss during their service no data is to Ije found. They left the State
one of the largest, and returned one of the smallest regiments, near two-
thirds of the organization having wasted away, either by disease, or death on
the battle field, during their three years' service.
