History of the 85th Illinois Volunteers
Illinois Volunteer Infantry
Henry J. Aten

Pages 470 - 481

SERGEANT JAMES MOSLANDER, aged twenty-three, single, farmer, born in Virginia, and enlisted from Summum, Ill. He was chosen corporal at the organization of the company; was wounded at the battle of Perryville, Ky., October 8, 1862; promoted sergeant; served with his company to the close of the war, and was mustered out with the regiment. He resides at Havana, Ill.

Company I was enrolled by William H. Marble under date of August 1, 1862, in that part of Fulton county bordering on the Illinois river. The records of the company show that there were carelessly kept, and are very defective in many respects.

The company was organized at Marble's mills by the election of the following commissioned officers: William H. Marble, captain; David M. Holstead, first lieutenant, and Hugh McHugh, second lieutenant.

One man was killed in action, and 12 were wounded who lived beyond the close of the war, 4 officers resigned, 2 were mustered out with the regiment and one was promoted, 18 men were discharged, 11 died of disease, 5 were transferred and 21 returned home at the close of the war.

In the individual sketches which follow an attempt is made to give a concise statement of the history of each member of the company, each of whom may look back with pride upon the results of the war, and rejoice in the fact that it was his privilege to bear an honorable part in the great struggle for freedom.
