The 88th Regiment, Illinois Infantry was organized at Camp Douglas, Chicago, Illinois, and mustered in September 4, 1862.  It mustered out at Nashville, Tennessee, June 9, 1865 and discharged at Chicago, Illinois, June 22, 1865[1].

For more information on the history of the 88th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, see the following:

  • Wikipedia, (accessed 6 January 2011) article on the 88th Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment.



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.
