History of the 85th Illinois Volunteers
Illinois Volunteer Infantry
Henry J. Aten
JOHN F. ANNO was born in Chillicothe, Ross county, Ohio, in 1830, and was married and a farmer when he enlisted from Mason county. He served in all the campaigns in which the regiment participated, was wounded at the battle of Peach Tree creek, Georgia, July 19, 1864, in the right arm, side and back, and died of wounds July 25, 1864.
Company A was enrolled by Matthew Langston under dates running from July 18 to August 15, 1862. A majority of the men enlisted from Mason county, although Morgan, Peoria and Tazewell counties were represented in it ranks. At the organization of the company the following commissioned officers were elected: Matthew Langston, captain; Thomas R. Roberts, first lieutenant, and Dr. John W. Neal, second lieutenant.
Of the 93 officers and men composing the company 18 were hit with shot or shell, 10 of whom were killed or died of wounds. Four officers resigned, 19 men died of disease, 25 were discharged, 2 were transferred, and 1 officer and 31 enlisted men were mustered out with the regiment.
It is due to the company to say that it maintained a high standard of discipline throughout, and bore its full share in making the history of the regiment illustrious.
