Alton in the Civil War Credits HOME

The Alton prison opened in 1833 as the first Illinois State Penitentiary and was closed in 1860, when the last prisoners were moved to a new facility at Joliet. By late in 1861 an urgent need arose to relieve the overcrowding at 2 St. Louis prisons. On December 31, 1861, Major General Henry Halleck, Commander of the Department of the Missouri, ordered Lieutenant-Colonel James B. McPherson to Alton for an inspection of the closed penitentiary. Colonel McPherson reported that the prison could be made into a military prison and house up to 1,750 prisoners with improvements estimated to cost $2,415. The first prisoners arrived at the Alton Federal Military Prison on February 9, 1862 and members of the 13 th U.S. Infantry were assigned as guards, with Colonel Sidney Burbank commanding. During the next three years over 11,764 Confederate prisoners would pass through the gates of the Alton Prison. Of the four different classes of prisoners housed at Alton, Confederate soldiers made up most of the population. Citizens, including several women, were imprisoned here for treasonable actions, making anti-Union statements, aiding an escaped Confederate, etc. Others, classified as bushwhackers or guerillas, were imprisoned for acts against the government such as bridge burning and railroad vandalism.

Conditions in the prison were harsh and the mortality rate was above average for a Union prison. Hot, humid summers and cold Midwestern winters took a heavy toll on prisoners already weakened by poor nourishment and inadequate clothing. The prison was overcrowded much of the time and sanitary facilities were inadequate. Pneumonia and dysentery were common killers but contagious diseases such as smallpox and rubella were the most feared. When smallpox infection became alarmingly high in the winter of 1862 and spring of 1863, a quarantine hospital was located on an island across the Mississippi River from the prison.

    The Battle of Olustee
    Early in the morning of February 20, 1864, General Seymour's army left Barbers' Station and moved westward towards Lake City. Because of the necessity of posting garrisons at Jacksonville and elsewhere, the Union force consisted of between 5,000 and 5,500 men. The small army was divided into three brigades of infantry, one brigade of mounted troops, and supporting artillery
    The Federals advanced in three columns along the Lake City and Jacksonville Road, which ran roughly parallel to the Florida Atlantic and Gulf-Central Railroad. The Federal cavalry was in the vanguard, followed by the slower-moving infantry. By mid-day the Federals had reached Sanderson , where they briefly stopped for lunch. While it Sanderson, Seymour and his staff were warned by a defiant southern woman: "'You will come back faster than you go."' The Union officers were amused at her boldness.
    In the early afternoon of February 20, a few miles west of Sanderson, the advance elements of the Union cavalry began skirmishing with a few southern horsemen that appeared to their front. This skirmishing was maintained for several miles, with the Federals driving the Confederates westward towards the railroad station at Olustee, about ten miles east of Lake City. Southern resistance intensified as the Federals neared Olustee.

Files may be printed or copied for personal use only. ************************************************************ A Brief History of the 31st Louisiana Infantry The 31st Louisiana Infantry was formed on June 11, 1862 at Monroe. The regiment was organized mainly from men of Morrison's Battalion. Morrison, was Charles H. Morrison, who would be comissioned a Colonel, and would lead the regiment until just before the siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi. The 31st was made up of 9 companies of men from Caldwell, Carroll, Claiborne, Ouachita, Union, and perhaps Franklin and Madison Parishes. The regiment remained in training at Monroe until the latter part of June, and then established a camp near Vicksburg in Madison Parish, Louisiana. Later, the regiments headquarters would be moved to Tallulah in the same parish. In the last part of June the regiment was sent on their first operation. They were ordered to the river town of New Carthage in Tensas Parish, where they were to procure clothing and blankets for the American Indian troops commanded by Brigadier General Albert Pike. In August of 1862 Sixty five of the regiments men were sent to Milliken's Bend to unload a munitions shipment from the tranport ship, Fair Play. This shipment was also intended for Pike's troops, but it would never reach its destination. On the 16th, A Union expeditionary force had gotten underway, and by the 18th had landed at Milliken's Bend. As the men of the 31st were unloading the Fair Play, the Yankees fell upon them in a surprise attack. The regiment was caught off guard, and the Union troops captured the entire shipment. When the men of the 31st fled in confusion, a nine mile chase ensued, and 40 men of the regiment were captured. After the fiasco at Milliken's Bend, the regiment returned to Tallulah, and remained encamped there until October. At that time they moved their camp to Delhi Louisiana, which is also in Madison Parish. The men would remained there until mid-October, and then move camp to Trenton in De Soto Parish. In November the regiment was ordered to Jackson, Mississippi, and it was here that the troops from the Catahoula Battalion joined the 31st. The regiment now consisted of 10 companies, and it would remain that way until the fall of Vicksburg. On December 27, 1862 the 31st was ordered to Chickisaw Bayou just outside of Vicksburg. It was there, that the regiment would take part in its first real battle as part of the Provisional Brigade. Joining the 31st in the Provisional Brigade were troops from Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. The men of the regiment fought gallantly at Chickisaw Bayou, helping fight off several attempted advances by Union forces, which were under the command of Major General William Tecumseh Sherman. Finally, on January 3, 1863 Sherman was forced to concede to the Rebel force, and retreated with his troops back up the Mississippi. After the battle of Chickisaw Bayou, the men of the 31st set up winter camp at Vicksburg. They remained peacefully encamped there until the end of April, doing picket duty and drilling. Then on May 1, 1863 the 31st Louisiana saw action for the second time at Port Gibson, Mississippi as Grant's campaign against Vicksburg began in earnest. The regiment was assigned to the 1st Brigade this time, which was a part of Smith's Division. The brigade was commanded by Brigadier General William Edwin Baldwin, and consisted of men from Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. During the battle of Chickisaw Bayou the 31st had been under the command of its founder, Colonel C.H. Morrison. Prior to the battle of Port Gibson, at least according to one source*, Colonel Morrison had taken a leave of abscence and gone home. The regiment was now under the leadership of Colonel Sydney H. Griffin. At Port Gibson the 31st fought in the closing stages of the battle, and when Confederate forces were overwhelmed they guarded the Rebel retreat. In all, the 1st Brigade suffered 87 casualties as a result of the battle; 12 killed, 48 wounded and 27 missing. How many of these men were from the 31st is uncertain. As General Ulysses Grant's men pressed in towards Vicksburg proper, the men of the 1st Brigade were posted as Pickets on the Big Black River. While they didn't take part in the main fight at the Big Black, they once again guarded the Southerners flight. The Confederate troops were being forced into Vicksburg itself, and the men of the 31st helped to ensure they arrived there safely. Once behind the defensive works of Vicksburg, the men of the 31st, like all of the Confederate troops there, dug in and prepared for the worst. General Ulysses Grant, commander of all the Union forces at Vicksburg, thought that the city might be taken by force. During a major assault on May 22, 1863 the 31st Louisiana along with the men of the 26th Louisiana Infantry held off an advance of Union troops. The Yankees finally were forced to retreat and wait for another day. The number of men lost by the 31st at that time is not known. After the failed assault, Grant changed his plans, and decided to take Vicksburg by siege.Several men of the 31st were lost during the siege, including their leader Lieutenant Colonel S.H. Griffin, who was killed while observing enemy operations from the trenches. On July 4, 1863 the Confederate forces capitulated, and the men of the 31st surrendered their weapons. Each Confederate soldier was forced to sign an oath, saying they would no longer fight and were then paroled. Those refusing to sign remained as prisoners, and were sent to Union prison camps. It is unknown whether any of the men of the 31st refused to sign the oath. Whether they intended to keep it or not, most of the regiment did sign the oath, and were consequently released, and allowed to return to their homes. According to Arthur W. Bergeron's Guide to Louisiana Confederate Military Units 1861-1865," Many of the men decided they had seen enough fighting and remained at their homes until the war ended. I January 1864, some of the men went into a parole camp at Vienna but returned home on furlough after a few weeks. After the men were declared officially exchanged, they went into camp at Minden in June. They spent two weeks there, moved to Shreveport, and soon went to Pineville. The regiment declared officially exchanged, they went into camp at Minden in June. They spent two weeks there, moved to Shreveport, and soon went to Pineville. The regiment formed part of General Allen Thomas' brigade and acted as a support for Fort Buhlow and Fort Randolph near Pineville until February 1865. At that time, it moved to Bayou Cotile, remaining there until May. The men marched to Mansfield and were disbanded just prior to the surrender of the Trans-Mississippi Department." However, according to some Louisiana muster roll records in Baton Rouge that is not what happened to all the men of the 31st. After the Vicksburg parolees were declared officially exchanged, part of those men who did return would, along with remnants of the 26th, and 27th Louisiana infantry regiments, become Company F of the 22nd Consolidated Regiment. These men would be trained as heavy artillerist, and would spend most of their remaining service manning batteries in the defense of Mobile, Alabama. The 22nd surrendered at Meridian, Mississippi on May 8, 1865. * The information about Colonel Charles H. Morrison being on leave came from the pension application of Private Isaac R. Norred, Company C, 31st Louisiana Infantry.

    ordered four of North Carolina's regular military units to proceed into the Army ofthe confederate States of America, after North Carolina left the union.
    JOSIAH PENDER AND THE CAPTURE OF FORT MACON (published in the Spring '97 Ramparts) by: Bennett R. Moss Fort Macon was built to protect Beaufort and its harbor from hostile invaders. Whoever possessed Fort Macon would have effective control of an important area of eastern North Carolina. When word of the Confederate siege of Charleston's Fort Sumter was received in Beaufort, a local unit of secessionist militia decided to take action against Fort Macon. The militia unit, known locally as the "Beaufort Harbor Guards" consisted of 17 men under the command of Josiah S. Pender. On April 14, 1861, the Beaufort Harbor Guards and some of their friends, descended upon the surprised Union caretaker, Sergeant William Alexander, and took possession of Fort Macon for the Confederacy. They lowered the Stars and Stripes and replaced it with an improvised Confederate flag. Sgt. Alexander was not the only one surprised by this venture. The governor of North Carolina was also surprised when he heard of it. The War had barely begun. Not only did the capture of Fort Macon occur just one day after Fort Sumter fell, but North Carolina was still a part of the Union, and remained so for another 35 days! To say the least, the military career of the militia commander, Josiah Pender, was strange. Pender was born into a wealthy North Carolina family in March, 1819. At the age of 16, he obtained an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He entered West Point on July 1, 1835. Seven months later he resigned from the Academy because he found military discipline to be intolerable. He then turned to the study of art.

    Boys in the Military
    Figure 1.No miliary uniform has had more impact on children's clothes than sailor suits. The suits commonly worn in each country were based on the contemporary style of the national navies. This tennage boy has just entered the English Navy at about the turn of the century. Children before our modern era commonly joined the military. Boys served a drummer boys during the Civil War. Young boys entered the British navy as ensigns leading to a commission and as powder boys leading to service as seamen. The use of boys continue through the 19th Century. While this seem cruel to our modern sensibilities, the use of child labor was also extensive. The life of boys, even quite youg ones could be very difficult. Boys from working class families often had short childhoods. Read about the boys that worked in mines, for examole, such as the "breaker boys" in coal mines. When one reads about the use of child labor into the 20th cerntury, the use of boy soldiers can be seen in better perspdevctive. These boys wore unforms just like adults. Even today in the interminable conflicts in developing countries, especially, Africa, often boys are actively involved.
    HBC has collected some limited infornmation concerning children involved in military service in a few countries, although our information at this time is very limited.

    The Confederacy raised between 764 and 1009 regiments over the period of the Civil War. The lack of adequate records precludes a more accurate count. Regardless of the actual number of regiments recruited, the list below is but a small fraction of those that were raised. It is hoped that many other Civil War regiments will find a "webmaster" in the future to preserve their history.
