To all whom it may Concern: This certifies that: Amos Loughry Enlisted November 24, 1863 from Kankakee City, Illinois, to serve three years or during the War, and was Mustered into the United States service at Camp Butler, Illinois at Springfield on December 31, 1863 as Private of Captain Jacob Rugers Company 'H', 76th Regiment Illinois Volunteer Infantry, Colonel Samuel T. Busey commanding. The 76th Illinois Infantry was organized at Kankakee, Illinois, in August 1862, and was mustered into service on August 22, 1862. It was ordered immediately to Columbus, Kentucky, and armed with Enfield Rifles. It moved to Boliver and LaGrange, Tennessee, and then was sent with General Grant on his campaign along the Mississippi Central Railroad. The 4th Division of the 13th Army Corps, to which the 76th Regiment was attached, after various movements and skirmishes reached Holly Springs, January 5, 1863. It moved to Memphis and then down the Mississippi River to Young's Point, Louisiana, where it landed May 17th. On the next day it embarked for Grand Gulf and then for "Chickasaw Bayou," where it was in battle until the final surrender of Vicksburg on July 4th, then moved with Sherman's Army against Jackson, Mississippi, skirmishing with the enemy at Big Black River, and at Champion Hills. After the evacuation of Jackson, the Regiment moved to Natchez and then back to Vicksburg, where it was in camp until January 31, 1864, and on February 3, started with General Sherman on his Meridian Campaign. On May 4th the Regiment accompanied the expedition, commanded by General McArthur, to Yazoo City, and participated in the battles of Benton, Vaughn's Station and Deasonville and drove the enemy out of Yazoo City. On July 1, 1864, it started on an expedition to Jackson, commanded by General Slocum, and was in a severe battle near Clinton, where the 76th Regiment bore a prominent part and lost heavily in killed, wounded and missing. July 29th the Regiment embarked for Morganza, then was transported to Port Hudson. September 3rd the Regiment embarked on the Steamer "Nebraska" and moved up the Mississippi River to the mouth of White River, landed and camped on the Arkansas shore, then moved to Duvall's Bluff, Arkansas, and from there to Memphis, Tennessee, where it remained until December 31, 1864, and was then ordered to embark on the Steamer "Niagara" for New Orleans where it arrived January 4, 1865. It moved to Mobile Point, where it was nearly wrecked in crossing the gulf during a terrible storm. It crossed to Lake Ponchartrain, then to Fort Barrancas, Florida, where the regiment was united. On March 20 the regiment started with General Steel's expedition to Spanish Fort and Fort Blakely. The colors of the 76th regiment were the first planted on the enemy works. The regiment moved to Mobile and from there to Selma, Alabama.
