In February 2003 Chris Paysinger dug the
B. J. Williams - Co, K W. S. S. Name Badge
And other relics rerlated to the 66th Illinois Infantry

On March 2, 2016 I received this email from Nancy Gall-Clayton

Dear Virgil Robinson: Just discovered the photograph of the name badge of my great-grandfather, Burton J. Williams on your website ( Please feel free to add his attached obituary and photograph to your website if you wish. Mr. Williams lost his right arm in a battle (no idea which one), and family legend has it that he was admired for his beautiful handwriting, but learned to write again with his left hand, writing just as beautifully.
