Das Regiment wurde aufgestellt in Union Counts, Johnson County, Pulaski County, Jackson County und Alexander County, d.h. in einem Gebiet, in dem zeitweilig “pro-slavery Arguments” vorhanden waren um die Union zu retten. Das Regiment hielt zusammen bis ins Frühjahr 1863. Als Lincoln’s Emancipation Politik zu greifen begann, brach diese Klammer auseinander. Für die meisten Sol­daten war die Erhaltung der Sklaverei als Zeil wichtiger als der Erhalt der Union. Ende Januar hatten die meisten Soldaten das Re­giment verlassen. Die wenigen verbliebenen Soldaten wurden in die 11th Illinois Infantry versetzt und das Regiment aufgelöst (vgl. Hicken: Illinois in the Civil War, a.a.O., S. xvii).

HISTORY OF REGIMENTAL COLORS OF 124th REGIMENT OF ILLINOIS VOL. INFANTRY

 

History of Regimental Colors of the 124th Regiment Illinois Volunteer Infantry, this day inspected and ordered to be dropped from returns and deposited at the Capital of Illinois, by Captain Scott, A. A I. Gen'l, 3d Division, 16th Army Corps.

 

These colors were borne by the 124th Regiment on the march of General Grant's Grand Army from LaGrange, Tenn. to the Yacana, Misa., and return to LaGrange, Tenn., in December, 1862. Also, from LaGrange to Memphis, Tenn., in January, 1863. From Mem­phis, Tenn., to Lake Providence, La., in February, 1863, and from thence to Milliken's Bend to Port Gibson, Miss., in April, 1863. They were carried in and through the following engagements: Port Gibson, May 1st, 1863; Raymond, May 12th, 1863; Jackson, May 14th, 1863; Champion Hills, May 16th, 1863. Siege of Vicksburg, including the assault on the enemy's works, May 22, and Fort Hill, June 26, 1863. They were also borne on the Monroe, Louisiana, and Brownsville, Mississippi, campaigns, in September and October, 1863, and in the great Meridian Expedition under Gen. Sherman, in February, 1864. They were also carried by the Regiment on the occasion of the Champion Drill of the 3d (Logan's) Division, 17th A. C. when the 124th Regiment won the prize Banner, which was presented to the Regiment by Major General McPherson, January 23, 1864, as the Excelsior Regiment of the 3d Division, 17th A.C. During all this period the Regiment constituted a portion of the 3d (Logan's) Division, 17th Army Corps. These colors were also bor­ne by the Regiment in the campaign again at Yazoo City, and in the battle of Benton, Mississippi, in May, 1864, under Gen. McAr­thur. Also, in the Jackson, Mississippi, campaign, and in the battle of Jackson Cross Roads, Mississippi, in July, 1864, under Gen. Slocum, and in the White River and Memphis expedition in October, 1864. They were also borne by the Regiment (though too much shattered and torn for actual use,) in the great campaign against Mobile and Montgomery, Ala., in March and April, 1865, under Gen. Canby, including the siege of Spanish Fort, and the storming and capture of the enemy's works, April 8, 1865, by the 3d Brigade, 3d Division, 16th Army Corps, of which the 124th Regiment was a part. During the period including the foregoing operations, the Re­giment marched by land and water over 4100 miles, and was engaged in fourteen skirmishes, ten battles, and two sieges of forty se­ven days and nights, and thirteen days and nights respectively, thus being under the fire of the enemy eighty-two days and-sixty nights.
