Brief History

The 93rd Regiment, Illinois Infantry was organized at Chicago, Illinois, and mustered in October 13, 1862.  It marched to Washington, D. C., via Richmond, Virginia, April 29-May 19, having a Grand Review on May 24. It mustered out June 23 and discharged at Chicago, Illinois, July 7, 1865[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.
