Names of ex-soldiers and sailors residing in Wisconsin, 1905

Wisconsin Census Enumeration 1905 : Names of Ex-Soldiers and Sailors Residing in Wisconsin, June 1, 1905


In 1885, 1895, and 1905, Wisconsin's Secretary of State listed every Civil War veteran living in the state and published them as appendices to the state census. These three works together contain about 75,000 names on more than 1,000 pages, and often show information about a Civil War soldier that is not easily available anywhere else. Each volume includes soldiers who served in units from other states as well as Wisconsin, or who belonged to units in the U.S. Army, Navy, or Colored Troops.

The 1905 volume here is subdivided into several discrete sections, each separately alphabetized.

Always browse, if possible, as well.
