Regimental History
One Hundred and Thirty-sixth Illinois Infantry. Col., Frederick A. Johns; Lieut.-Col., William T. Ingram; Maj., Henry A. Organ. The companies forming this regiment were enlisted about the first of May, 1864, and went into camp at Centralia, but were not mustered into the U. S. service until the first day of June, following, its term being 100 days. Shortly after muster it received marching orders and was sent by rail to Cairo, Ill., and there placed on a boat, with Fort Pillow as its probable destination. When it arrived at Columbus, Ky., word was received that Gen. Forrest was making a feint on Fort Pillow but would attack Columbus and the regiment was consequently landed there, where it remained doing garrison duty during the months of June, July, August and September. It was mustered out Oct. 22, 1864.
