History of the 85th Illinois Volunteers
Illinois Volunteer Infantry
by

1901
CHAPTER XXXII.
Pages 420 - 432

GEORGE HODGE, aged eighteen, farmer; enlisted from Spring Bay. Served through the Kentucky campaign, and died at Nashville, Tenn., June 17, 1863. Is buried at No. 3546 in the national cemetery near the city.

Company F was enrolled by John Kennedy at Pekin, Tazewell county, between June 15th and 21st, 1862, in anticipation of a call for additional troops. This was almost a month earlier that the enrollment of any other company in the Eighty-fifth. Unfortunately the enlistment roll of this company does not always definitely fix the birth-place of the men. At the organization of the company the following commissioned officers were elected: John Kennedy, captain; Robert A. Bowman, first lieutenant, and Richard W. Tenney, second lieutenant.

During the three years' service 25 of the company were struck by bullets or shell in battle, 9 of whom were killed, 7 died of wounds and 9 recovered, 4 were accidentally killed, 10 died of disease, 23, were discharged, 4 were transferred and at the final muster out there were but 30 present.

The company was always bravely commanded, and never failed to do its full duty toward the preservation of the nation's integrity.
