Brief History


The 131st Regiment, Illinois Infantry was organized at Old Fort Massac and mustered in November 13, 1862. The Regiment consolidated with 29th Illinois Infantry November 15, 1863. [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.


The following counties of origin are taken from the Adjutant General's Report, found on the Illinois Civil War Rosters web site. Roster pages are from the same report found on the Internet Archives web site. The rosters show the men who served in each regiment, their residences, dates of enlistment and mustering out, and other remarks.


Roster Information about the 131st (Consolidated) Illinois Infantry Regiment can be found at Illinois Civil War Rosters and at Roster, vol. 6, pages 610 - 616.
