    1861 · Simple life to Soldiers

    Age 24

    Illinois contributed 250,000 soldiers to the Union Army, ranking it fourth in terms of the total men fighting for a single state. Troops mainly fought in the Western side of the Appalachian Mountains, but a few regiments played important roles in the East side. Several thousand Illinoisians died during the war. No major battles were fought in the state, although several towns became sites for important supply depots and navy yards. Not everyone in the state supported the war and there were calls for secession in Southern Illinois several residents. However, the movement for secession soon died after the proposal was blocked.

    Name Meaning

    habitational name from Richmond (North Yorkshire). The placename was probably transferred after the Norman Conquest from any of numerous places in France named with Old French riche ‘mighty, strong’ + munt, mont ‘mountain, hill’. Richmond in southwest London received this name only in the reign of Henry VII, in honor of the king, who had been Earl of Richmond until he came to the throne, and is unlikely to be the source of this surname.

    occasionally a variant of Richman , with excrescent -d. The two names were probably often confused.
