Barrington Residents in the Civil War
Written and compiled by Gerry Barry, November, 2009
Gerry Barry, a member of the Northern Illinois Civil War Round Table, has completed extensive research on Barrington's involvement in the Civil War. Combing through records for names of soldiers who enlisted at Miller's Grove Methodist Church in Barrington Hills, Barry found the names of 179 local residents who participated in the Civil War.
Further research added details about their regiments, companies, ranks, muster-in dates, and more. By tracing their paths, Barry was able to put together details about the Civil War experiences of local residents.
