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.
