According to my ggg grandfather's obituary he built and guarded a fort in Henderson County during the Blackhawk War. His name was Elihu Elnathan Chandler.
I've been searching for further information about him, but can find none. He is not listed as being the Blackhawk War on Fold3 or in the IL archives which leads me to believe he might have been a volunteer ranger.
Is there any way I can find out about his volunteer service?
