I have a 2x great grandfather, Eli Bennett, that served in Co. K 15th Illinois Infantry. I would love to find a photo of him. Any suggestions on where to look? He mustered out. Unwounded. Did spend sometime in a hospital with “weak lungs” (I imagine pneumonia) but left the hospital early to rejoin his company. After the war he moved to Stromsburg, Nebraska, where he died.
