The following is taken from the 33rd., Illinois, Regimental History.
First Lieut. Amandus L. Bush was an officer full of good nature and enterprise. He was inclined to take things as they came without complaining, which is an excellent characteristic of a soldier. Bush was always ready to share his last dollar and only cracker with any soldier, and if the good wishes of his comrades are worth anything, his chickens will all lay golden eggs. He is in the poultry business in Escondido, California.
