Organization of the 33rd Division
From: Marguerite Edith Jensen, The WarTime Organization of Illinois, (Springfield, Illinois: Illinois State Historical Library, 1923), volume 5 of Theodore Calvin Pease, editor, Illinois in the World War.
The Illinois National Guard was mobilized at Camp Logan, Texas, and there, except for four units, was reorganized into the 33d Division under the command of Major General George Bell, Jr. Those units of the guard which were not assigned to the 33d Division were the 1st Field Artillery, which became the 149th Field Artillery of the 42d Division, the 8th Infantry (colored) which became the 370th Infantry, 93d Division, and the band units of the 5th and 7th Infantry Regiments which were attached to the 304th and 305th Cavalry respectively. The new assignments of the former state units were as follows:
