For most counties, one or more county histories were published between about 1870 and 1900. These often contain lists of the troops formed within the county, short regimental histories, and biographies of soldiers.
Newspapers of the Civil War era are filled with news of the war and of the troops from the locality. Some of these can be obtained through the IL State Historical Library.
