Below is the 4th Illinois Regimental History
Fourth Cavalry.-Cols., T. Lyle Dickey, Martin R. M.
Wallace; Lieut.-Cols., William McCullough, Martin R. M.
Wallace, William L. Gibson, Majs., William McCullough, Charles
C. James, Martin R. M. Wallace Samuel M. Bowman, William L.
Gibson, Mindret Wemple, Charles D. Townsend. On Sept. 26,
1861, this regiment was mustered into the U. S. service for
three years and soon after took up its line of march for
Springfield, where it received its arms, which were not
removed from their cases, however, until the command arrived
at Cairo. Upon the arrival of the regiment at Cairo it went
into camp upon the highest ground that could be found, where
an immense amount of labor was done by the command in the way
of clearing and log rolling before a decent camp could be
arranged. Very shortly after getting settled Co. C was
detached and sent to the Big Muddy as a bridge guard, and Co.
A was detached to serve as escort to Gen. U. S. Grant, in
whose service it continued until Aug., 1863. In Dec., 1861,
when the reconnoissance to Columbus, Ky., was ordered, the
regiment moved with the rest of the army and became the
advance body, where it kept its place during the entire,
movement. It was slightly engaged at Fort Henry and then
pursued the retreating Confederates toward Fort Donelson,
meeting its first loss in the death of a private in Co. I.
The regiment participated in the battles of Fort Donelson and
Shiloh, in the movement on Corinth, then did guard duty in
various places until Aug., 1863, when it was ordered to
Vicksburg and remained at that place until the expiration of
its term of service. In the latter part of Oct., 1864, that
part of the regiment that had not reenlisted was ordered home
to be mustered out. When the regiment left Cairo in Feb.,
1862, it had about 1,100 men and when it came back to that
point in 1864, it had 340-the latter being the number that
were mustered out at Springfield in Nov. 1864.
