23rd Illinois Infantry

Early in 1861 a company composed entirely of Irishmen and known as the "Jackson Guard" was recruited by John W. McDermott of Detroit, offered their services to Colonel James Mulligan who was recruiting in Illinois to become part of the Irish Brigade of Illinois. The offer was accepted and they left the state early in June of 1861 for Chicago, Ill. They served the entire war in that capacity.
