December 3, 2013

From the November 28, 1863, issue of The Prescott Journal.  As with the list of men drafted in Polk County, most of these men do not seem to have served in a Wisconsin regiment.  Several of them, however, seeing the handwriting on the wall they joined up in one of the existing companies from this area—the Prescott Guards or the Hudson City Guards.

    I am wondering if it would be okay to reprint this list in the St. Croix Valley Genealogical Society newsletter? Since it was first posted in The Prescott Journal, I would think it would be okay, but just wanted to double-check. Does the ARC have any other complete lists of men who served in the Civil War from Pierce or St. Croix Counties?

      Yes, that would be fine. Just credit the UW-River Falls Area Research Center and the blog. This is a particularly good list for genealogists because most of these men did not serve, so you don’t find them in the soldier records of the time.
