"Abraham Lincoln served as a volunteer in the Illinois Militia April 21, 1832 - July 10, 1832, during the Black Hawk War. Lincoln never saw combat during his tour but was elected captain of his first company. He was also present in the aftermath of two of the war's battles, where he helped to bury the militia dead."
