-Illinois Civil War database

On the 19th of Oct., a detail from the Eighty-fifth was engaged in gathering corn from a field on an island in the river some considerable distance above camp. After the corn was gathered it had to be brought across an arm of the river in boats to a point where it could be loaded into wagons. On the last trip one of the boats capsized, and Corporal Deford and Michael Rhoads, of Company F, were drowned.
