Regimental History
One Hundred and Thirteenth Illinois Infantry, Col., George B. Hoge; Lieut. -Cols., John W. Paddock, George R. Clark; Majs., Lucius H. Yates, George R. Clark, Cephas Williams. This regiment left Camp Hancock, near Camp Douglas, Nov. 6, 1862, when it was ordered to Memphis, Tenn., to report to Gen. Sherman. On its arrival there it went into camp and remained till it joined the movement known as the "Tallahatchie Expedition." It participated in the battle of Chickasaw bluffs and went from there to Arkansas Post, where it lost heavily. It arrived in the rear of Vicksburg on the evening of May 18, 1863, and participated in the assaults of the 19th and 22nd, in which it again lost heavily. The remainder of the term of service was devoted largely to the performance of guard duty. On March 23, 1865, Col. Hoge was appointed provost marshal of the district of West Tennessee and remained in that position until he was mustered out with the regiment on June 20, 1865.
