Birth: Mar. 25, 1843
Johnson County
Iowa, USA
Death: Mar. 15, 1934
Mount Pleasant
Henry County
Iowa, USA

He was the son of John William Alt and Jane Mallory. George married Elizabeth Rebecca Ross Nov 27, 1867 Johnson Co. Iowa.

George enlisted at the start of the Civil War in the 18th Regiment of Iowa Volunteers on Aug. 1, 1862. He went to Clinton, Clinton Co., IA to join his company, but the ranks were already filled. While waiting for another assignment, he contracted typhoid fever, a common disease which swept through many Army camps during the Civil War. It is to be noted that disease killed almost as many, if not more, than actual combat did at that time in our history. He was discharged from the 18th Iowa on Sept. 22, 1862. When he finally recovered sufficiently, some 18 months later, he reenlisted, this time in Co. A, 22nd Regiment, Iowa Volunteers on Feb. 27, 1864. He served under Gen. Sherman in the Shenandoah Valley Campaign, finally being mustered out with his company, by this time in Co. D, at Savannah, Georgia, July 25, 1865.
