29th Negro Regiment

Memorial Day 2019 We Salute the 29th Negro Regiment in Illinois. 
The 29th Illinois was organized in 1864 and this Regiment of the United States 
Negro Troops had 1,811 men on its roster, though probably only about half of them were actually from Illinois.

During and before the Civil War, there was a the legal fight to repeal the Illinois Black Code. Which kept blacks from voting provide testimony against whites in court; in a particularly egregious cases, where blacks would be subject cruelties up to and including murder (lynching’s) in most cases.
