Regimental History
Forty-third (Consolidated) Illinois Infantry. Col., Adolph Dengler; Lieut.- Cols., Adolph Dengler, Hugo Westerman; Maj., Hugo Westerman. Not quite three-fourths of the membership of the original organization reenlisted in the veteran service and Col. Engelmann succeeded in prevailing on the state authorities to assign a sufficient number of drafted men to the 43d, so that Lieut.-Col. Dengler could be commissioned colonel, in which capacity he afterward commanded. The regiment remained at Little Rock, Ark., till its muster out, Nov. 30, 1865, from where it returned to Camp Butler for final pay and discharge, Dec. 14, 1865.
