Birth: unknown
Death: Nov. 12, 1864
Andersonville National Historic Site
Macon County
Georgia, USA

He was a farmer from Rosemount, MN, just south and west of Fort Snelling. Enlisted as a private (date unknown) at age 17 and on 2/20/1864 was mustered into Co. D, 1st Minnesota Infantry.
The "Old First" was being mustered out and efforts were being made to reenlist enough of the veterans to allow the units name to be continued on. However, there were not enough men left who were willing to sign up so the new unit got a new name, the 1st Minnesota Battalion. George was re-mustered into Company B of the First Battalion on 3/1/1864 and served as a musician, probably a drummer.
He was captured on June 22, 1864, at the Battle of Petersburg and sent to Andersonville Prison. Unfortunately, a couple of months later he died from scorbitus. He never saw his 18th birthday.
