Brief History

The 95th Regiment, Illinois Infantry was organized at Rockford, Illinois, and mustered in September 4, 1862.  It moved to Meridian and Vicksburg, Mississippi and mustered out August 17, 1865. Recruits transferred to the 47th Illinois Infantry[1].

For more information on the history of the 95th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, see the following:

  • Wikipedia, (accessed 6 January 2011) article on the 95th Illinois Volunteer Infantry Regiment.
  • Civil War Archive. (accessed 6 Jan 2011) Brief history of the 95th Regiment Infantry.


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.
