The Illinois Central not only funneled the troops and their supplies to Cairo on their way to the front, but with any railroad, there is a “backflow” that in this case consisted of the results of the battlefield that returned the realities of the war to Chicago: wounded, caskets, and prisoners. The Federal government was originally as ill-prepared for these realities as it was for manning and equipping an army. An organization that served a parallel function to the U.S. Quartermaster was the U.S. Sanitary Commission, created on June 18, 1861, modeled after the British Sanitary Commission during the Crimean War, to originally support the sick and wounded soldiers during the war. Its functions quickly expanded to include responsibility for the sanitary conditions of the Army’s camps and supplementing those supplies for the troops provided by the army, providing the combined services that have since been the realm of the USO and the Red Cross.
It did not take long for the conditions at Camp Douglas and with the troops stationed at Cairo to gather the necessary publicity to ignite the righteous indignation of Chicago’s populace. On October 17, 1861, a group of concerned leading citizens met at the Tremont House to form the Chicago Branch of the USSC. Judge Mark Skinner was elected its president, lead manufacturer Eliphalet W. Blatchford (ironically, Chicago’s largest producer of minié balls) its treasurer, and Ogden’s brother-in-law Ezra B. McCagg, its secretary. But these men were simply the titular patrician leadership positions, for the actual operations were first under the control of Eliza C. Porter, the wife of Presbyterian minister Jeremiah Porter, the staunch abolitionist who was the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church. She was able to secure the offices on the lower floor of McVicker’s Theater as the headquarters for the group, before she had shifted her efforts in December 1861 to nursing, hand
Co. B. of the 80th Illinois Volunteers was raised in Upper Alton and Fosterburg. The entire regiment was captured and surrendered to Lt. Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest at Blunt’s Farm, May 3, 1863, and were kept at Camp Chase. Exchanged on June 23, 1863 and sent to St. Louis, to recruit and re-equip before returning to action. The 80th Illinois fought at Perryville, Streight's Raid from Tuscumbia toward Rome, Ga., Missionary Ridge (Chattanooga), Atlanta Campaign, Buzzard's Roost Gap, Resaca, Kenesaw Mountain, Peachtree Creek, Jonesborough, Spring Hill, Franklin, Nashville. The 80th ILL traveled 6,000 miles, and has been in over twenty battles. #civilwar#civilwarhistory#reenactors#livinghistory#americancivilwar#unionarmy#altonillinois#myalton#history#historians#authenticcampaigner#altonjaegerguards
Finding my grandmothers work online • As I gear up for my live painting gig in Arkansas next month, I am looking through my ancestry notes and digging • I’ll be visiting two significant places in Arkansas that my ancestors walked. •1. Francois Missionary Baptist Church in Malvern, where my 4th Great Grandfather built the first church in 1848. He along with his son and grandson, are buried there. •2. PeaRidge, where my 3rd Great Grandfather Smith Clardy fought in the civil war. He was a confederate soldier and he rode under the Choctaw Chickasaw Mounted Rifles Regiment. A few years ago, a local Natchitoches civil war historian gave me a modern day version of the flag he would have rode under. My plan is to lay that flag there, and then leave the flag on Smith’s grave at the church graveyard in Malvern. • These are my maternal roots, though they’re knotted and imperfect, without these people, I would not exist.
All the atrocities of the Vietnam war .. With all these weapons of mass destruction having decimated millions of poor innocent and amputated the majority of them.. All mines scattered in the battlefields .. And these drops missiles with destructive bombs radio-controlled guidance .. There is no word to describe such horrible scenes ..
Don't forget them.
