Item No. CV90994 Category


Carte view identified as Lieutenant William Conyers of the 16th Illinois Volunteer Infantry. William would muster as a sergeant in Company D late in May, 1861. In September, 1862 he would be promoted to 2nd lieutenant. The 16th would see their first action during the Siege of Nashville. They would go on to fight at Resaca, Atlanta, Kennesaw Mountain andtake part in Sherman’s March to the Sea before seeing their last fight at Bentonville. All told they would lose a 170 during the war. William would be discharged in May, 1865. This view was once part of the personal cdv album of James Cahill who served as Lieutenant Colonel for the regiment. This view does have an old period pencil on the reverse which reads “Lieut Connairs *sic Co. D 16”. Obviously an incorrect spelling of his last name. Back marked out of Nashville, Tennessee
