Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, and part of Louisiana as well as Indiana Territory (Oklahoma). That is the place that John Wesley Hannah and the Illinois 62 spent two years.
In April, 1865, the men who were not veterans were ordered back to Illinois for mustering out. Those that remained were consolidated into seven companies. John Wesley became to Captain of the new Company D and also continued as Provost Marshall. On July 8, 1865 the 62nd became part of Brigadier General Bussey’s command at Fort Gibson, Cherokee Nation in Indian Territory.
