Civil War

Millburn's young men did their patriotic duty when the call to arms was sounded.

Read a newspaper account of a meeting in Millburn, when nine volunteers were raised, in April, 1861.

During this period of time, many people had their views criticized. Read Mark Daily's public statement, published in May, 1861.

Read a newspaper account of the Sanitary Fair, held in Millburn, published in October, 1864.

Many Millburn men enlisted in the Ninety-Sixth Illinois Volunteer Infantry. We also have a summary of this unit.

Thomas Strang kept a diary while he served in Company C 2nd Illinois Light Artillery near the end of the war.

Another list of Civil War soldiers is maintained in our Cemetery Veterans material.
