Birth: Apr. 1, 1841
Death: Aug. 17, 1876
Denver
Denver County
Colorado, USA

August Bartsch was born in Prussia (what is now Eastern Europe), and moved to Wisconsin in 1854, working as a blacksmith.

When the Civil War broke out, August was one of the first Madisonians to volunteer. He started as a first Lt. in the 26th Wisconsin Infantry, Company D. He fought at: Chacellorsville, Gettysburgh, Missionary Ridge, Buzzard's Roost, Kennesaw Mountain, & Atlanta.

Prior to Gettysburgh, Bartsch was made a Captain, and moved to Company G (still with the 26th Wisconsin Infantry). However, it was during the battle of Gettysburgh, that Bartsch recieved a wound to one of his lungs (it was this wound, that would eventually prove fatal for Bartsch, 13 years later). He was "mustered out" of the service, on 5/15/1865.

After the war, Bartsch sold and manufactured cigars.

August Bartsch passed away in 1876, after traveling to Colorado, to seek some relief for his damaged lung.
