This history of Company A 37th Illinois Volunteer Infantry, was written by our father, Henry Ketzle, for his family and at the request of an old comrade. The data is from his diary kept by him throughout the Civil War Years, and written in the early 1900's. We are proud to share it with you and hope you may enjoy it as much as we have.

I am the fourth generation Ketzle to reproduce my great-great-grandfather's diary.  The changes in my reproduction are primarily in paragraphing and verifying and re-spelling location names.  This document is meant to be a recounting of the events, and not intrepreted in itself as a historical document.  I welcome factual corrections.
