I burst with pride whenever I read those words "Thirty-Third Illinois." At last count I have found four relatives who fought in the 33rd Illinois. Two behind my mother served in Company "C," and two behind my father served in Company "A." Remarkable when you consider my Mom was born in Arizona and my Dad in Nebraska, and they were married in California. Not much there to point to Illinois. Except a lot of research.
