I received as a X-mas present from my wife a copy of the Regimental History of the 46th regiment of Volunteer Infantry, first compiled in 1890 by a General Benjamin Dornblaser and put into completed form a by a Thomas B. Jones, Lieut. Company B.Historian. Presently I know nothing about this regiment except that in thumbing through it I can see that they were at Shiloh and Vicksburg. I am writing this in case anyone on this site has ancestors from that regiment and would like to know more about them. This book was put into a printed final volume in 1907. It has thumb nail sketches of a large number of the common soldiers and what they looked like when they were photographed for GAR membership. It includes a roster of all who served and where they were circa 1900. So if anyone reading this knows of a relative from the 46th Ill. or thinks they may have had one in that regiment let me know and I'll send you what is in the book.
