Corporal John Ackerman
Company K of the 32nd Regiment Illinois, Vol Infantry
3rd Division, XI Corps, Army of the Potomac

On the evening of July 2, 1863, the second day at Gettysburg, Ackerman's company had been sent back into the streets of the town at the base of Cemetery Hill to drive away Confederate snipers.

Ackerman, known for his bravery, begged Captain Joseph Greenhut if he could wait behind because he had a strong presentiment of death. Greenhut relented, but while Ackerman was lying on Cemetery Hill awaiting the return of his company, he was killed by an exploding Rebel shell.

Corporal, Company K, 32nd Illinois Volunteer Infantry; Interred in the Illinois Plot, Site #A-5
