Regimental History
Sixty-seventh Illinois Infantry. Col., Rosell M. Hough ; Lieut.-Col., Eugene H. Oakley; Maj., William H. Haskill. In May, 1862, rumors that the enemy in great force was advancing on Washington, resulted in an urgent call on the governors of states to forward immediately to Washington all the volunteer and militia forces in their states. In response to this call the 67th, 68th, 69th, 70th and 71st Ill. infantry regiments were organized and mustered into the U. S. service for three months. These regiments relieved the veteran forces at Camp Butler and Camp Douglas, and the latter were sent to the front. The 67th regiment was organized at Camp Douglas, Chicago, June 13, 1862, where it remained during its term of service doing guard duty.
