PATRIOTISM OF PIATT COUNTY.

     In a history dealing with military achievement, the people of Piatt County may have no feeling of shame in pointing to the record of men - and in their field, of women - in the Nation's wars.  From the earliest period of the county's settlement of spirit of patriotism has been definitely manifest, and when, in 1837, Judge Emerson, in delivering the first Fourth of July oration, presented the toast: "May this Monticello bring forth another Jefferson," he voiced the ardor and fire of a people whose love of country has continued to be a leading characteristic.  The call of the country for men to bear arms has never yet failed to find Piatt County prepared to send forth its full quota, or more, and the men who have gone forth from its farms and villages to protect the Nation's honor have spread the fame of Piatt as one of Illinois' most patriotic counties.  The men whose courage and strength led them to the settlement and development of this region, and their sons and grandsons who have followed them and who have inherited these sturdy and sterling qualities, have responded valiantly to every demand made upon them, and the same characteristics that contributed to agricultural, commercial, educational, professional and religious progress, have combined to bring forth a first-class race of fighting men, who upon scores of battlefields have demonstrated that civilians, given the incentive, are formidable to any military force which may be organized.

CIVIL WAR RECORDS.

Will be transcribed upon request.

RECORD OF PIATT COUNTY SOLDIERS.

     Eight large volumes of the adjutant-general's reports of Illinois soldiers were carefully sifted in preparing the appended record of regiments and soldiers, but in spite of the fact that no pains have been spared to make the report accurate, mistakes may have crept in.  This because throughout the reports two Monticellos were given; in a number of cases men reported themselves from places the names of which have been since changed, and in some instances the same person's name was spelled in two, and sometimes in three, different ways.  With a single exception, only histories of regiments are given the original of which appears in the adjutant's reports, and histories are given only of those regiments having the greatest number of Piatt County soldiers.

SEVENTY-SECOND ILLINOIS INFANTRY.

     The Seventy-second Illinois Volunteer Infantry included about ninety-four men in Company E, nearly one-fifth of whom were from Piatt County.  This regiment rendezvoused at Camp Douglas, Chicago, and was mustered into the service of the United States Aug. 18, 1862, five days later leaving for Cairo.  It left Columbus, Ky., for the field Nov. 21, marched six miles south of Oxford, Miss., with a part of the army of General Grant, left Memphis, Mar. 1, 1863, with the Yazoo Pass expedition, marched from Milliken's Bend to Hardtimes Landing, crossed over to Grand Gulf and marched to Raymond, Miss., and at Champion's Hill defeated the Confederates after an extremely hard-fought battle.  At the Big Black River the enemy was pushed so close that the bridge was set fire too soon and several hundred prisoners were taken by the Union forces.  The Seventy-second bridged this stream and advanced to within four miles of Vicksburg, May 19, 1863, and with the forces of Sherman and others formed a line of battle corresponding with the twelve miles of breastworks and forts.  On May 22 it charged the whole line, but failed to take the works, and laid down to a siege which lasted forty-six days.  On June 25, a line of battle was again formed to take the works, and when Fort Hill was blown up by General Logan's men, the Forty-fifth Illinois charged, but was subsequently forced to retire.  On July 3, the Confederates surrendered, and on the following day the Seventy-second Illinois marched into the captured city.  On ct. 6, it left Vicksburg and Nov. 9 arrived at Paducah, Ky., left Nashville, Nov. 15, and went to Columbia.  On Nov. 29, the regiment left for Franklin and by hard marching reached that place ahead of the enemy, and the next day was spent in raising breastworks.  After the battle of Franklin and Seventy-second marched to Nashville, where it received reinforcements, and Dec. 15, started in pursuit of Hood's army, capturing its works and a few prisoners.  The regiment went into winter quarters at Eastport, Miss., and during the winter suffered from lack of rations, but reached New Orleans Feb. 20, 1865, and camped on General Jackson's camping grounds.  From there it went to Mobile Bay, securing Fort Blakely and Mobile, and after marching some time in Alabama started homeward July 19 and was mustered out at Chicago, Aug. 14, 1865.  The men who belonged to the Seventy-second and came from Piatt County were as follows:

SEVENTY-THIRD ILLINOIS INFANTRY.

     The record of the Seventy-third Illinois Volunteer Infantry is a particularly honorable one.  Leaving the state one of the largest regiments, it returned one of the smallest, and its members, officers and men alike, won great reputation for bravery.  It is calculated that nearly two-thirds of the organization was wiped away by disease, death or battles during its three years of service.  It was organized at Camp Butler in August, 1862, becoming a part of the army of General Buell, and after fighting fiercely at Perryville, Ky., Oct. 8, 1862, took part in every battle fought by the Army of the Cumberland, From then on to the complete route of General Hood's army, at Nashville, and the close of the war.  After Perryville, it fought at Murfreesboro, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge and the succession of battles from Chickamauga to the fall of Atlanta; formed a part of Opdyke's Brigade at Franklin, which saved the day for the North, and lost its last man killed in driving Hood's army from Nashville.  Piatt County men in the Seventy-third were as follows:

SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR.

     While the limited number of soldiers called for in Spanish-American War left it unnecessary for Piatt County to supply anything like the proportion of soldiers which it gave to the Civil War, still when the call came the county responded and its men departed themselves in a manner that demonstrated that the fighting qualities of their fathers were not lacking in the sons.

A PROPOSED MONUMENT.

     Mr. A. T. England, a wealthy resident of Monticello, who was a member of the Second Illinois Cavalry in the Civil War, offered to erect in 1912 a monument in Courthouse Square to cost not less than $10,000, but the board of supervisors decided that there was no suitable place in the courthouse yard to put it and no other suitable site has been found.  The erection of the monument was therefore abandoned by Mr. England.

GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC.

     The Grand Army of the Republic, that highly and justly honored organization of old heroes of the Civil War, had its inception in Illinois, sits founder being Dr. Benjamin Franklin Stephenson, who had served bravely and helpfully as a surgeon of the Fourteenth Illinois Infantry.  In the work of organization he was assisted by the Rev. W. J. Rutledge, a Methodist clergyman who had served as a chaplain of the same regiment, and with whom, even before the close of the war, Doctor Stephenson had discussed plans for a brotherhood of the survivors of the struggle.  After the close of their military service, Doctor Stephenson and Reverend Rutledge, a Methodist clergyman who had served as a chaplain of the same regiment, and with whom, even before the close of the war.  Doctor Stephenson had discussed plans for a brotherhood of the survivors of the struggle.  After the close of their military service, Doctor Stephenson and Reverend Rutledge,  with other veterans, prepared a ritual for the proposed organization, and for this paper two printers of Decatur, Ill., Isaac Coltrin and Joseph Prior, who had served in the Union army, where employed to set the type.

FIRST GRAND ARMY POST.

     The first post of the Grand Army of the Republic was organized by Doctor Stephenson, assisted by Capt. John S. Phelps, at Decatur, Ill., April 6, 1866, this being the fourth anniversary of the first day's bloody encounter on the field of Shiloh.  There were twelve charter members, the last survivor of whom was Christian Reibsame, of Bloomington, whose death occurred in 1914.  Doctor Stephenson held the position of provisional department commander, and in that capacity issued a call for a general convention to be held at Springfield, Ill., June 26, 1866, and at that time a state organization was effected, with Gen. John M. Palmer  in the office of commander-in-chief.
     As a national organization, the Grand Army of the Republic held its first encampment at Indianapolis, Inc., Nov. 20, 1866, pursuant to the call of Doctor Stephenson.  There Gen. Stephen A. Hurlbut, of Belvidere, Ill., was elected first commander-in-chief.  It is of interest to note that at the second encampment, held at Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 15, 1868, another of Illinois' distinguished sons, Gen. John A. Logan, was chosen to lead the organization.
     It is but natural that a county which has always shown itself so patriotic as ahs Piatt should have taken in deep interest in the work and movements of the Grand Army of the Republic.  Posts were organized at Atwood, Bement, Cerro Gordo, La Place, Mansfield and Monticello.  The years have taken their toil of the Union soldiers, over fifty thousand having passed away in 1916.  This explains why the Grand Army of the Republic posts have been discontinued at many points, there not being enough old soldiers left to maintain an organization
