Civil War Service

I have found the following information about my Ancestors’ Civil War Service

Charles Lycurgus Hatch (Born: 12 Feb 1931, Died 1910?):

Charles L Hatch enlisted on 09 Nov 1861 as a Private in the Union Army, Company K, 10th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment.  He was wounded at Chaplin Hill and taken prisoner at Chickamauga.  I believe he escaped as he was mustered out on 03 Nov 1864,  the others taken captive were liberated from their POW camp in March 1865.

The 10th Wisconsin Infantry was organized at Camp Holton in Milwaukee, mustered into service for three years on October 1, 1861, and traveled to Kentucky during November and early December. During the war it moved through Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia. It participated in the battles of Perryville, the Atlanta Campaign, Chickamauga, the siege of Chattanooga, and the battle of Kennesaw Mountain. It was mustered out on October 25, 1864, at which time re-enlisting veterans and new recruits were transferred to the 21st Wisconsin Infantry. The regiment lost 244 men during service. Five officers and 91 enlisted men were killed. One officer and 147 enlisted men died from disease.

Isaac Jacobus Emmons (Born 15 Feb 1815,  Died 15 Feb 1886)

16 Feb 1965 enlisted as a Private in the Union Army, Company G, 49th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment.  Mustered out on 8 Nov 1865

The 49th Wisconsin Infantry was organized at Camp Randall in Madison between December 24, 1864, and March 5, 1865. It left the state for St. Louis, Missouri, on March 8, 1865, just a few weeks before the war ended. It moved to Rolla, Missouri, on March 13 where its services included garrison and guard duty until August. It then moved to St. Louis, where it mustered out on November 8, 1865. The regiment lost 54 men during service, all from disease.

Charles L Hatch’s son Melvin Hatch married the daughter of Isaac Emmons.  Their son Erl Hatch served in WWI.
