Regimental History
Military Guard at Camp Butler. Upon a call of the president in May, 1862, for a military guard over the prisoners of war confined at Camp Butler, Gov. Yates called into the service three companies of the Bloomington Cadets, who were duly mustered into the U. S. service for that purpose. The companies were officered as follows: Co. A. Capt., George W. Lackey; First Lieut., John W. Morris; Second Lieut., John R. Larrimore. Co. B. Capt., James P. Moore; First Lieut., Harvey C. DeMotte; Second Lieut., Timothy Owen. Co. C. Capt., Samuel P. Shannon; First Lieut., James O. Donald; Second Lieut., Owen T. Reaves. The companies remained in the service of the Federal government until June 10, 1862, when they were relieved and mustered out.
