43rd Illinois Infantry
Consolidated Soldier Roster - Report of the Adjutant
General of the State of Illinois, Volume 3, Revised by Brigadier General J.N.
Reece, Adjutant General, 1900
|Forty-third (Consolidated) Illinois Infantry. — Col., Adolph Dengler; Lieut.- Cols., Adolph Dengler, Hugo Westerman; Maj., Hugo
Westerman. Not quite three-fourths of the membership of the original
organization reenlisted in the veteran service and Col. Engelmann
succeeded in prevailing on the state authorities to assign a sufficient
number of drafted men to the 43d, so that Lieut.-Col. Dengler could be
commissioned colonel, in which capacity he afterward commanded. The
regiment remained at Little Rock, Ark., till its muster out, Nov. 30,
1865, from where it returned to Camp Butler for final pay and discharge,
Dec. 14, 1865.
