Overview

"This work is not intended to be a roster of listing of names. It is meant to bring substance and meaning to the lives of those who fought for their beliefs in the Civil War. Histories have been written of the many Wisconsin regiments and their exploits. Each of those regiments consisted of hundreds of individuals of various backgrounds, ideals and occupations. Those who fell through disease or wounds left behind a grieving family. Those who returned carried on in their traditions and worked to create a better life for themselves, their families and neighbors. My intention is to find parts of the history for each individual and to identify the final resting place of every Civil War veteran who is buried within the county. These volumes represent my findings prior to 1993."
"The following criteria were used to determine if a veteran should be included in these volumes:
1. He was known to reside in Winnebago County prior to the outbreak of the war, as proven by census records, biographies, cemetery inscriptions and records, military records, etc.
2. He was known to reside in Winnebago County after the war, as proven by any of the above.
3. He is buried in any Winnebago County cemetery, whether proven to have resided in the county or not.
4. He was listed in the official records as having resided in Winnebago County at the time of his enlistment."
Entries are listed alphabetically and include the following information when known: rank, company, division, birth, death, parents, spouse, family line, children, activities during the war, prisoner of war, post-war occupations, and sources of information.
