Kossuth County Civil War Veterans ~ New York ~ Michigan ~
Data for 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:
