Regimental History
Seventh Illinois Infantry (Three Months' Service). Col., John Cook; Lieut.-Col., Wilford D. Wyatt; Maj., Nicholas Greusel. A number of regiments raised in response to the president's first call for volunteers claimed to be the first ready for the field, but the honor of being the first was finally accorded to Col. Cook, and his regiment became the 7th. Co. A was recruited in the vicinity of Elgin; B at Mattoon, C at Aurora, D at Litchfield, E at Atlanta, F at Bunker Hill, G and I at Springfield, H at Lincoln, and K at Carlinville. The regiment was mustered in at Camp Yates, Springfield, April 25, 1861, for three months. Its term of service was spent about Alton, St. Louis, Cairo and Mound City, and it was mustered out on July 25, 1861.
