Ninth Illinois Infantry (Consolidated). Lieut. -Cols., Jesse J. Phillips, Samuel T. Hughes; Maj., William Padon. While at Decatur, Ala., in April, 1864, about 40 of the men belonging to the original 9th Ill. infantry re-enlisted as veterans, and these, with 105 who were termed as deserters, and 103 who were transferred from the 128th, together with a few recruits, altogether numbering about 250 men, were by authority consolidated into a battalion of seven companies. This battalion moved with the army to Savannah ; thence to North Carolina, where the Confederate forces surrendered, being constantly on the flank or in advance of the army. The consolidated regiment was mustered out July 9, 1865, at Louisville, Ky.
