Welcome to Lake County, Indiana
In the Civil War


This is what I've learned in my research so far...meaning it may not be 100% correct on all facts but can be used as a guide to finding more information or possibly sparking interest in someone out there to send what they know as fact about the County History. I am by no means an expert on the county history or the Civil War.

In 1860 the population of Lake County was about 9,145 in about 1800 families, of those it is thought that about 1000 young men went off to war. Many went into Illinois regiments which I haven't searched as of yet so I dont know a total...like I said, this is just a reference. But I figure, some information to go on is better than none.
The 20th regiment participated in the Battle of Gettysburg and lost 152 men and officers including Col. John Wheeler of Crown Point. Among the 152 were George W. Edgerton and J. Richmond. I do not have a total count as of yet of the Lake County men we lost to the Civil War, but I will show here a list of ones that I have found in T. H. Ball's 1873 book "Lake County 1834 to 1872".
