Kossuth County Civil War Veterans


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:
