Compilation of 92nd Illinois Troop Movements

The 92nd Illinois traveled thousands of miles during the Civil War. Close scrutiny of numerous narratives has revealed approximately five hundred troop movements from August 1862 until July 1865. If the entire truth were known, there were undoubtedly many more.

Please keep the following in mind when studying these movements:

            Distances given are rough estimates only.             

Regiments rarely traveled straight routes between Point A and Point B. They may have marched twenty miles in a circuitous route to reach a point only ten miles distant.

You will notice many duplicate entries just days apart. Civil War regiments typically occupied the same location numerous times.

There are occasional conflicts between sources. These conflicts are identified. 

How this study is organized:

All entries are in chronological order.

First Column indicates reference number. These numbers are provided should you choose to make a companion map of these movements. You will notice two types of reference numbers:

Number without lower case letter (i.e. 20) indicates movement by entire regiment 

Number with lower case letter (i.e. 20a) indicates movement by partial regiment, such as individual company 

Any entry without a reference number indicates unknown direction of movement. Hence, these movements probably would not be included on any companion map.

Second Column indicates date of troop movement

Third Column reveals nature of troop movement  - direction, purpose, location, distance

             Numbers in third column are presented in two forms:                              

             Numbers in digit form (i.e. “23”) indicate estimated miles traveled. With

             exception, these digits are found at end of each entry

     

             Numbers spelled out (i.e. “twenty-three”)  indicate geographical distance

Abbreviations:

“c”  indicates camped

Upper case letter by itself (i.e. “G”) within troop movement entry identifies individual company

Example of entry in this study:

58         3/9        c one south Spring Hill, 13

Interpret this example as follows: In troop movement identified by reference number 58, dated March 9, 1862, the regiment camped one mile south of Spring Hill. It traveled 13 miles.
