Old 94th Carried County's Banner Th rough Civil War By ELWELL CRISSEY Written For Civil War Round Table One hundred years ago the most exciting things McLean County people were talking about were the exploits of the 94th Illinois Illinois Volunteer Infantry. The reason was simple: That regiment was "McLean County's County's Own"; recruited wholly from McLean County men, commanded commanded only by McLean County County officers. Col. William W. Orme of Bloomington command ed the 2nd Brigade, 3rd Divi sion, of which the 94th was a part The regiment's commander commander was Col. John McNulta, also of Bloomington. (For years, old veterans of the 94th got together in Bloomington everv Aucust. to swap war yarns as old veterans tradi tionally love to do. Their last reunion was in 1927.) The day-after-day day-after-day day-after-day day-after-day day-after-day activities of the 94th, on the whole, were tedious tedious and dull. Even descriptions descriptions of an exciting battle tend to bog down in a welter of names, numbers and statistics. Therefore, we will have space here to mention only the 94th's significant highlights.
