History of the Seventh (7th) Illinois Infantry

The following is taken from the “Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Illinois. (1900)” with minor editing by the webmaster.

Illinois having sent six regiments to the Mexican war, by courtesy the numbering of the regiments which took part in the war for the Union began with number seven. A number of regiments which responded to the first call of the President for troops claimed to be the first regiment in the field, but the honor of being the first was finally accorded to Colonel John Cook, and hence his regiment was numbered seven. The Seventh regiment was recruited as follows: Company A from Elgin and vicinity; Company B, Mattoon and vicinity; Company C, Aurora and vicinity; Company D, Litchfield and vicinity; Company E, Atlanta and vicinity; Company F, Bunker Hill and vicinity; Company G, Springfield and vicinity; Company H, Lincoln and vicinity; Company I, Springfield and vicinity; and Company K from Carlinville and vicinity.

The regiment was mustered into the United States service at Camp Yates on April 25th,1861, by Captain John Pope, U.S. Army, and was forwarded to Alton, St. Louis, Cairo and Mound City, where it remained during the three months service.

It was reorganized and mustered for three years' service on July 25th, 1861, by Captain T.G. Pitcher, U.S. Army, and proceeded to Ironton, Missouri, and joined the command of Brigadier General Benjamin M. Prentiss. On August 23rd, 1861, it marched to Cape Girardeau, Missouri, where it remained some time, Colonel Cook commanding the Post. The regiment went into winter quarters at Fort Holt, Kentucky, with Colonel Cook commanding the post. The garrison consisted of a brigade - Seventh and Twenty-eighth Illinois and McAllister's battery. General Grant commanded the District of Cairo.

It was with the reconnoitering expedition, under General Grant, in the rear of Columbus, Kentucky. During the battle of Belmont was sent to Elliot's Mills, just above Columbus. On February 3rd, 1862, it embarked for Fort Henry, and on the 12th for Fort Donelson, taking part in the investment and siege of that place from February 13th, 14th, and 15th, and was engaged in the last charge on the left of the enemy's works. At Donelson the regiment was commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Babcock, Colonel Cook commanding the Third Brigade, Second Division of Major General C. F. Smith. The loss was three (3) killed, including the gallant Captain Mendell of Company I, and nineteen (19) wounded.

On February 21st, 1862, they left Fort Donelson for Clarksville, Tennessee, Major Rowett commanding, Lieutenant Colonel Babcock being absent sick, and Colonel Cook commanding the Brigade. Ordered to Nashville, and afterwards to Pittsburg Landing, where it arrived on March 22nd,1862. Was engaged continually on April 6th and 7th, at the battle of Shiloh, under command of Lieutenant Colonel Rowett, Colonel Babcock being absent, sick, and Colonel Cook having been promoted to Brigadier General on the 2nd of March; was a part of Colonel Sweeny's Brigade of General W.H.L. Wallace's Division; went into action between 9 and 10 o'clock April 6th, and first took possession at Duncan's Field and drove the enemy in its front across the field but was in turn driven back; and when the Division Commander, General Wallace, was killed and the Brigade Commander, Colonel T.W. Sweeny, was wounded and taken off the field, Lieutenant Colonel Rowett obtained permission from General McClernand to form on his left and become a part of his line, where his horse was killed in a charge on the enemy. The Seventh was in the line that repulsed the last charge of the enemy on the night of the 6th, when it was advanced to a picket line and remained there until relieved by General Buell's command near daylight next morning. It went into action before noon on the 7th, and was hotly engaged when the enemy retreated at 3 o'clock P.M. In this battle the regiment lost, in killed, 2 commissioned officers and 15 men; wounded 79. Lieutenant Colonel Rowett was among the latter.

It was engaged up to May 30th with the Third Brigade, Second Division, and in center of right wing; moving upon Corinth - meanwhile having several skirmishes with the enemy. On the evacuation of Corinth on May 30th, by the enemy, the regiment marched to Farmington and Booneville, Mississippi, repairing roads and bridges, and returned to Corinth on June 11th, 1862. At the battle of Corinth on October 3rd and 4th, 1862, the regiment was engaged both days, entire, on right of Third Brigade, and still in Second Division. Colonel Babcock was in command. On October 5th they marched in pursuit of enemy as far as Ruckerville, and returned on 10th. The loss at Corinth was 2 commissioned officers and 6 men killed, and 46 wounded. Also, 21 prisoners, who have since been exchanged and returned to duty. On December 18th they marched to Lexington, Missouri, in pursuit of guerrillas.

On February 28th, 1863, Colonel Andrew J. Babcock resigned and retired from the service, when Lieutenant Colonel Richard Rowett was promoted Colonel, to rank from that date.

On April 15th, 1863, they marched with General Dodge's command through Iuka, Glendale and Burnsville to Bear Creek, on the Alabama line. On the 17th they deployed as skirmishers, drove the enemy from the creek, and, as soon as the cavalry had crossed, companies C and K pushed forward at a double quick in support of a battery. The remainder of the brigade then crossed, and, moving forward to Cherokee, engaged the rebels. The Seventh, on the right, killed 12 of the enemy and captured two prisoners. At dark retired, and next morning moved back to Bear Creek.

On April 25th, they again moved forward to Tuscumbia, and the same evening to South Florence, joining the Ninth Illinois (mounted) Infantry. The next day moved with main column to Town Creek. On April 28th it crossed Town Creek and drove the enemy three miles, and remained on the ground during the night with the Second Iowa Infantry. On the 29th it re-crossed and returned to Corinth with the command, arriving on May 2nd. The Loss during this expedition was one man killed - accidentally shot.

On May 12th to June 8th, 1863, it guarded the railroad from Bethel to Jackson, Tennessee. On June 18th, mounted, by order of Major General Dodge, and the remainder of the month was scouting through West Tennessee. From July 7th to 9th was engaged on scouting. From July 26th to August 5th, on an expedition under command of Colonel Rowett, of the Seventh, capturing 42 prisoners, including one Colonel and two Captains, and many horses and mules. Lost one man, accidentally killed. Again went out, together with 100 men of the Tenth Missouri Cavalry. Had several skirmishes and captured 20 prisoners. On September 26th, commenced a four days' expedition with the Seventh Kansas Cavalry, Colonel Rowett in command. Had some very brisk skirmishes, and captured 30 prisoners and several horses and mules. On October 4th, relieved the Eighteenth Missouri at Chewalla, and was again relieved on the 28th.

On October 26th, proceeded to Iuka. Here guarded approaches until the 6th of November, when marched to Eastport, and, crossing the Tennessee river, moved on flanks of Dodge's command, capturing horses, etc., and fighting guerrillas until November 12th, when camped at Pulaski. From November 17th to 19th, scouted to and beyond Lawrenceburg, capturing 30 prisoners. On November 21st, ordered to Corinth, and returned to Pulaski, capturing 25 prisoners. On December 10th, ordered on scout toward Shreve Creek and Florence, Alabama.

The Seventh Infantry re-enlisted as Veteran Volunteers at Pulaski, Tennessee, on December 22nd, 1863, and was mustered in on January 6th, 1864, and left immediately for Illinois, to receive 30 days' furlough. Arrived at Springfield on January 18th, 1864. Received an enthusiastic reception from the citizens. Quartered in Representatives' Hall until next day, when furloughed. Reassembled on February 18th, 1864, reinforced by 200 recruits. Left Camp Butler for Pulaski on the 23rd, under command of Major Estabrook - Col. Rowett being in command of Camp Butler. Arrived at Pulaski on February 27th, 1864, where the regiment was mounted, and left for Florence, Alabama, 90 miles distant, to patrol the Tennessee river and watch Forrest's command, which were just leaving Tuscaloosa, Alabama, on the memorable raid on Paducah and Fort Pillow. The regiment was divided into three detachments - four companies at Florence, two companies at Sweetwater, and four at Centre Star. On April 8th, Colonel Rowett returned to the regiment, whose headquarters were at Florence, Alabama, and again assumed command, having been relieved from the command at Camp Butler, at his own request.

On the morning of the 7th of May, General Roddy's rebel brigade crossed the Tennessee, between Sweetwater and Centre Star, and attacked the companies at Florence and Sweetwater. After six hours severe fighting against ten times their number, the companies were obliged to retire with a loss of three officers and 32 men wounded and captured. On the 13th of May, the 7th returned with the 9th Ohio Cavalry, under command of Colonel Rowett, and drove the rebels across the Tennessee, capturing a number of prisoners. Was engaged in patrolling the river until June 14th, when the regiment was dismounted and ordered to report to the Brigade Commander at Rome, Georgia. Arrived at Chattanooga, Tennessee on the 17th of June, and was ordered to Tilton, Georgia, to patrol the railroad from Dalton to Resaca, which was then threatened by rebel Cavalry. On July 7th was relieved by the 18th Wisconsin Infantry, and proceeded to Rome, Georgia, and went into camp on the south side of the Etowa river. On the 29th of July the non-Veteran officers and men were mustered out by reason of expiration of term of service. Captain Hector Perrin was mustered as Lieutenant Colonel, and Captain Edward S. Johnson as Major. On the 3rd of October 1864, the 4th Division, 15th Army Corps, (to which the Seventh was attached) commanded by General John M. Corse, was ordered to Allatoona Pass to assist in the defense of that important station, then threatened by Hood's army. The 3rd brigade consisting of the 7th, 50th and 57th Illinois, and 39th Iowa, commanded by Colonel Rowett, reached the Pass on the morning of October 4th. The railroad being destroyed after the passage of this Brigade, the rest of the Division failed to reach its destination. On the morning of the 5th the Pass was attacked by General French's rebel Division, numbering six thousand men. The 7th, armed with the Henry rifle, (or 16 shooter,) did gallant and fearful work - successfully repelling four separate charges made by the desperate and hungry enemy on the line occupied by them - its torn and bleeding ranks told at what a fearful cost. Its colors, under which fell many a gallant bearer that day, were never lowered.

The brave Captain Jack Sullivan and Adjutant Robinson fell mortally wounded. Colonel Rowett was severely wounded in the head. Thirty-eight men were killed and sixty-seven wounded. The enemy lost two thousand two hundred killed and wounded, and, not able to stand against this gallant little band of defenders in the Pass, they fled, leaving this number on the field. The Seventh, together with all those who assisted in that gallant defense and glorious victory, won never fading laurels, and was highly complimented by the Division Commander and General Sherman, who said: "For the numbers engaged, they stood upon the bloodiest battle field ever known upon the American continent." After the battle the regiment returned to Rome, and on the 12th of November, with their Corps, under command of General Osterhaus, joined the Grand Army of Sherman at Kingston, Georgia, where preparations were being made for the "March to the Sea."

On the 21st of November the regiment was remounted and detailed as the advance of the 16th Army Corps. On December 22nd, under command of Lieutenant Colonel Perrin, it entered Savannah with Sherman's victorious columns. Then turning northward with the army, entered into the campaign of the Carolinas; participated in the battles of Salkahatchie Swamp, Bentonville and Columbia. While on the march to the sea the regiment was surprised by the appearance of Captain E.R. Roberts, who was captured, with most of his company, on May 7th, 1864, at Florence, Alabama. He had effected his escape from the prison pen at Columbia, South Carolina, and by night had traveled 180 miles to join his regiment.

On April 20th Colonel Rowett returned from his enforced absence, caused by wounds received at the battle of Allatoona, and again took command of the 3rd Brigade.

After the surrender of General Johnson, April 26th, the regiment took up its line of march for home by way of Petersburg, Richmond and Alexandria on May 17th, 1865, and took part in the grand review at Washington, when it was ordered to Louisville, Kentucky, where, on the 9th of July, it was mustered out of service. The regiment arrived at Springfield July 11th, when it was paid off and discharged.

Roster of Company I, "Springfield Zouave Grays"

The “Springfield Zouave Grays” were organized in 1858 by John Cook with volunteers from the town of Springfield, Sangamon County, Illinois. Upon completing its organization John Cook was elected as Captain of Company, which was assigned to service with the Illinois State Militia as Company A of the 20th Regiment of Infantry.

With the calling up of volunteers in 1861 by President Abraham Lincoln the company immediately volunteered for active service was recruited to full strength, going in one day from only thirty (30) members to that evening having one hundred and eight (108) men on the rolls. The company reported for duty at the country fair grounds west of Springfield, designated as Camp Yates, on April 17th, 1861, and went into camp at that place, quickly being joined by other volunteer companies. On April 25th, 1861, the company was mustered into United States service as Company I of the 7th Illinois Infantry Regiment, United States Volunteers, for three months service, the original company commander, Captain John Cook, was elected as the Colonel of the new regiment with Andrew J. Babcock assuming the position of Captain of the “Springfield Zouave Grays.” The company would serve with the regiment throughout its first three months, and upon the expiration of that term of service on July 25th, 1861, the men re-enlisted for three years service, and then go on with the regiment throughout the rest of the war. The company was mustered out of service on July 9th, 1865, at Louisville, Kentucky.
