The Illinois Adjutant General's Report
Published 1883

The following data comes from the 8 volume set of Adjutant General's report for Illinois, 1883. This was a gift to this project from Bob Busch and we cannot thank him enough for his generosity!

This 8 volume set of books belonged to the founder of modern Orland Park, Mr. John Humphries, who was a member of the Illinois General Assembly in the late 1800s. His Grandson left this set to the society and they generously allowed Bob to make copies of all 8 volumes.

We plan to transcribe records in the 8 volumes that are not online at this time, more of the unusual and less heard of regiments and correspondence, along with the burials of Union soldiers. Below is what we have online currently. More will be added as it is transcribed.

You can refer to our other Civil War material, such as a list of
Statewide Pensioners, Pensions submitted by fellow researchers and our Military Descriptive Rolls, along with visiting our County pages for more Civil War Information and Data.

The Illinois State Archives
also has a Civil War Database online which lists all men who served.

We hope you find this information useful and as Bob says, " We hope you find Great, Great Grandpa!"
