Regimental History
Fifteenth (Reorganized) Illinois Infantry. Col., George C. Rogers ; Lieut.- Col., Lemuel O. Gilman; Maj., Joseph Develin. The campaign of Gen. Sherman ended with the surrender of Gen. Johnston. The reorganized 15th regiment then marched with the army to Washington, D. C, via Richmond and Fredericksburg and participated in the grand review at Washington, after which it remained there two weeks. It then proceeded by rail and steamboat to Louisville, Ky., and remained in the latter city two weeks. It was then detached from the 4th division, 17th army corps, and proceeded by steamer to St. Louis, thence to Fort Leavenworth, Kan., arriving there on July 1. It joined the army serving on the plains and arrived at Fort Kearny on Aug. 14, but was ordered to return to Fort Leavenworth Sept. 1, 1865, where the regiment was mustered out of service and placed en-route for Springfield, Ill., for final payment and discharge having served four years and four months. The total membership of the regiment aggregated 1,963, and 640 names were on the rolls at the date of muster-out.
