2nd Wisconsin Cavalry Regiment, Company D

Company D of the 2nd Wisconsin Cavalry contained soldiers primarily from La Crosse and surrounding villages, and from Hudson, with a few from Osceola. Most of them enlisted in October-November-December of 1861. While Daniel Mears was recruiting for a company that he thought would be entirely from the Saint Croix Valley they were known as the Saint Croix Lancers.

These are only the soldiers from Hudson, Osceola, and a handful from Pleasant Valley in Eau Claire County who enlisted in early 1862. For the full company roster, see the Roster of Wisconsin Volunteers, 1861-1865.
