CDV of Col. James A. Mulligan, 23rd Illinois, DOW
Lot # 60 - CDV of Col. James A. Mulligan, 23rd Illinois, DOW
James Adelbert Mulligan (1830-1864) was born in New York, but the outbreak of war found him in Chicago, IL. He enlisted in June in the 23rd IL Infy. as its Colonel. He was wounded at Winchester, VA in July 1864, and was awarded a Brigadier Generalcy by brevet for his actions in the fight. He died of wounds three days later as a prisoner of war.

The 23rd Illinois recruited under the name Irish Brigade, one of several. The New York Irish Brigade is better-known, but not the only one. The Chicago unit saw action first in Missouri, taking part in the siege of Lexington, with Colonel Mulligan in command. The unit surrendered when General Price arrived with the Missouri State guards, although the Irishmen held out for nine days. Mulligan was taken prisoner, but was exchanged for General Frost a short time later. Fremont ordered the unit mustered out, but on Mulligan's request, McClellan, as Commander of the Army, retained the unit.

After reassembling at Camp Douglas, again in Mulligan's command, it was ordered east to Harpers Ferry. Its next three years were spent in Virginia and West Virginia. The unit veteranized in April 1864, got their month's furlough and returned to Virginia. By July, it was heavily engaged in battles such as Maryland Heights, Cedar Creek, Winchester, Hatcher's Run, and more. But the unit lost its leader at Kernstown, along with nearly half of those engaged in that battle. They were at Appomattox Court House by April of the following year. They mustered out in July 1865 at Richmond, VA.
