I was doing research for a lady in Arkansas. This place is a family cemetery known as 
Rush Cemetery located about 1 mile south of Berryville, Arkansas. In this cemetery is buried: 

1st Sgt. Amos S. Potter
127th Regiment, Illinois Infantry

I looked up the capsule history and learned that this man died between January 3rd and the 11th of 1862. 
It says that this group of soldiers were mustered in at Camp Douglas, Cook, IL. I don't know that much 
about the Union line but was in hopes this might help someone searching for their lost ancestor. Many 
times people never knew what happened to their men who were casualties
