Clark County Military Database

Remember our Clark County patriots. Some lie in national cemeteries. Some sleep in hometown graves. Some never made it home. But all have something in common. They made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country, our freedom and our quality of life.

ATTENTION: I need help compiling a list of our county soldiers who have/are serving in the Iraq War. If you can assist in any way, please contact me. Thank you.

In Memorial
SPC Charles "Chuck" Robert Lamb (Martinsville) was killed in action 9/5/04 while serving in Iraq with the 1544th National Guard Transportation Unit. Remember his family in your prayers.

This site is dedicated to the citizens of Clark County, Illinois

During the writing of Rally Cry!, I began compiling information on the soldiers from the county who served from the Revolutionary War to the Vietnam War, nearly 7,000 men and women. The main sources used in the searches came from county burial records, various state military rosters, including the Illinois and Indiana Attorney General's Reports of the Civil War, and records from the National Archives and Records Administration, all of which have been made readily available to the public. Other invaluable tools were genealogy and military computer programs, especially Generations® by Sierra On-Line, Inc.® In addition to these resources, several web sites have been very helpful, and I encourage each reader to visit their sites to examine their wonderful material. These sites may be found in the CCMD links page below.
    Understandably, information concerning county soldiers who served in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 was relatively scarce after all the years. It is hoped that the majority of the men who served are included here. However, there may have been several inadvertantly excluded, and burial locations have yet to be pinpointed for many, especially those from the modern era. It is also my belief that some of the burial records which notated military service are in error. When a doubt existed, and verification impossible, a notation to this fact has been made.

    I regret any errors or ommissions. This site is intended to be a guide for further research and not an authoritative document. I am no historian, nor claim to be. Military history is simply a hobby to me, and, unfortunately, life's responsibilities keep me from the proper research needed to verify questionable military service- which is exactly why all volunteers who have available time is greatly appreciated.
    Any correspondence concerning the soldiers listed here, or those who may have been excluded, is welcomed for further documentation. I encourage all post-Vietnam soldiers to enter their information into the Clark County Veteran's Log on the right for inclusion onto the CCMD.
Thank you and enjoy your visit,
