Thirty-third Illinois Infantry Regiment of Volunteers Company C.
This collection contains clerical records including: muster in and out rolls; inventory of supplies and clothes; casualty reports; orders received and given; transportation records; and pay records. In addition, there are special order and special request documents to superiors by Captain Lewis and other officers illustrating Company conditions and actions during the conflict.
Most of the documents in the collection fall between the dates of July 1861, when the Regiment first came into existence, and November 1865, when the Company was mustered out. A smaller number of documents, pertaining to veteran reunions and related activities, go beyond this date.
Other interesting items from the collection include documents concerning the 1864 presidential election and the issue of freed slaves.
