Kossuth County Civil War Veterans
compiling a complete list of all residents in the county who
wore the blue in defense of the stars and stripes, at any time
during the Civil war, is not available and cannot be easily
obtained. It is to be regretted that such a list cannot be
compiled for this publication. All resident veterans are
entitled to have their names enrolled on the pages of Kossuth
County History, regardless of where they
were living at the time of enlistment.
Formerly the law required the auditor to compile such lists and
send them to the adjutant-general, but that law has long since
been changed. The last list so compiled, that is available, was
made while C. H. Hutchins was auditor. No doubt hundreds of
veterans have become residents since that time whose names,
consequently, are not on that list. Moreover many of the names
are those of old soldiers who are now deceased. The Republican
published the list June 24, 1885 and it is as follows:
Thomas J. Clark, Company F, Second
