ABOUT DATA
Illinois Black Hawk War Veterans

 

This database is from the IL State Archives Site. Please consult that site for further information. 
The Black Hawk War Veterans indexes the first volume of Ellen M. Whitney's The Black Hawk War 1831-1832.
That volume contains a comprehensive listing of Illinois' Black Hawk War soldiers. 
It includes the muster rolls for all of the 1831 and 1832 companies including 2 Indian companies. 
Approximately 1800 men served in the 1831 campaign and 9000 in the 1832 campaign. 
The Illinois State Historical Library possesses in either original or on microfilm the records from which this information was extracted.
The listing of veterans in Whitney's publication is far more complete and accurate than the listing found in the ninth volume of the 1902 
Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Illinois. The Archives possesses the 1881 transcriptions, produced from official rolls in 
Washington, DC, from which the information was taken to produce the 1902 report. 
The transcriptions comprise the Archives' record series, Black Hawk War Records (RS 301.007).
