I have the honor to submit my report following the 2013 Illinois State Musters of the Grand Army of the Frontier. The Division of Illinois engaged  in two campaigns in the fall of 2013. With reinforcements from the Divisions of Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana and Minnesota, the Division of Illinois reports record numbers of troops in the field. This can be verified by the numbers of shooters in each category.

Also contributing to the success of the campaigns was the overwhelming amount of firepower we were able to bring to the battles. The first battle near Polo, IL began with an artillery barrage commanded by J. W. James of Rock Falls, IL The second campaign was highlighted by the introduction of a Gatling Gun under the command of Major G. W. Strong. A total of 660 rounds was expended during that phase of the operation.

Neither of these aspects can take away the marksmanship of our individual troopers during the campaign. The following are the results for both campaigns:
