Biographical Information

Francis H. Boggs, Jr., was born in Illinois on January 3, 1844, to Francis and Elizabeth Boggs. His family were farmers in McLean County, Illinois, in the summer of 1862, when President Lincoln made his call for troops. On August 20, Boggs enlisted in the 94th Illinois Infantry, made up entirely of men from McLean County. The unit was assigned to the Army of the Frontier, operating in Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas. A month after this letter was written, the regiment took part in the battle at Prairie Grove, in Arkansas. In January, the Army was camped at Forsyth, Missouri, when Boggs became ill. He died on January 31, 1863.
