Hi everybody,

 

Just wondering about the above and if they did where can I find them?

 

Many Thanks,

 

Gerard

You will find that almost all units had a book on the history of the unit. They are spread all over the internet, the majority of them free to download. The first place to start is the Gutenberg Project. If there is any particular State your are looking in to let us know.

Thanks Tom. I am not sure the US 60th Regiment of Engineers would make a great topic for a book :( The man I am looking up joined up in Cook County, Chicago. I will check out your suggestion though.

If you have details of the chap I can have a look I have a lot of Illinois records.

 

60th Engineers operated railways (standard gauge) I believe

Sorry Gerard, I do not have Cook County. Attached are the units I found for Illinois in the past.
