You can find dozens of web sites that contain pictures of Civil War soldiers. One of the biggest collections of Illinois soldiers is available on the web site of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library.
The “Boys in Blue” is a repository for photographs of more than 8,000 Illinois soldiers who served in the Civil War. All of these images have been scanned and are in the process of being cataloged and added to the web site.
Photographs of soldiers from the 4th, 10th, and 11th Illinois Cavalry and the 7th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 14th, 17th, 26th, 33rd, 37th, 53rd, 56th, 64th, 77th, 86th, 101st, 108th, 114th, 117th, 120th, 122nd, and 130th Illinois Infantry Regiments have been added.
