|Fifteenth (Reorganized) Illinois Infantry. — Col., George C.
Rogers ; Lieut.- Col., Lemuel O. Gilman; Maj., Joseph Develin. The
campaign of Gen. Sherman ended with the surrender of Gen. Johnston. The
reorganized 15th regiment then marched with the army to Washington, D.

at Washington, after which it remained there two weeks. It then
proceeded by rail and steamboat to Louisville, Ky., and remained in the
latter city two weeks. It was then detached from the 4th division, 17th
army corps, and proceeded by steamer to St. Louis, thence to Fort
Leavenworth, Kan., arriving there on July 1. It joined the army serving
on the plains and arrived at Fort Kearny on Aug. 14, but was ordered to
return to Fort Leavenworth Sept. 1, 1865, where the regiment was
mustered out of service and placed en-route for Springfield, Ill., for
final payment and discharge — having served four years and four months.
The total membership of the regiment aggregated 1,963, and 640 names
were on the rolls at the date of muster-out.
