Information gathered from the ROSTER OF VOLUNTEERS,

J.M. Rusk, Gov. & C.P. Chapman, Adj. Gen., 1886,

THE WISCONSIN BLUE BOOK, 1907, and published obituaries.


Old Abe & the Iron Brigade

Old Abe &
the Iron Brigade


   This information is based on the name of residence provided by each soldier on induction.  Only data for those identifying Cassville as their residence were listed.  Today Beetown and Glen Haven are only a ten minute drive from Cassville, but in the 1860's it could take half a day to travel the distance.
  
  Also worth noting is the number of volunteers from such a small, rural township.  At least, 110 brave men served the Union from Cassville, a town whose population in 1860 was 860.
  
   Names of deserters have been omitted.
