Conrad Ramminger, a citizen of Schleswig, Manitowoc Co., Wis., was born Dec. 21, 1840 in Hesse Darmstadt, Germany. He came from his native land to the New World, in the last year of his minority and enrolled in the military service of his adopted county. He enlisted at Detroit, Mich., Aug. 15, 1861 under the second call for troops by President Lincoln, Michigan Volunteer Infantry, for three years. His regiment left Detroit and proceeded to camp at Monroe's Hill, Ky., near Munfordsville, where the winter of 1861-2 was passed in guard duty and drill. The first movement of the command was to Nashville in the spring where they arrived in March. From that time Forrest was planning his raids and a few days after their arrival the 9th went to Murfreesboro to assist in repairing the devastations of the rebels, and on the 13th of July sustained a direct attack from the 8th Texas while in camp, and Mr. Ramminger received a severe wound, his Col (Duffield) also being injured. The former was struck by a minie ball in his right thigh, and by a buckshot in his face on the nose near the right eye. His company was in the courthouse, which was surrounded by a Georgia regiment and compelled to surrender, after repulsing the rebels twice. Mr. Ramminger was in the hands of his captors three days, when he was paroled and sent to Camp Chase. In October following, his exchange was effected and the Union soldiers were sent to the headquarters of General Thomas as a body-guard. The route was made from Cincinnati to Covington, Ky., Louisville, and Nashville. In December the command was despatched to Murfreesboro to prepare for the battle known as Stone River, on the last day of the year and several of the first days of 1863. The 9th Michigan (being an unassigned command) was detailed to guard prisoners. They stayed there until the Tullahoma campaign, when they were again in a movement that promised results. But the troops dispersed to meet at Chickamauga, and the 9th Michigan went to Chattanooga and the regiment was in the lines of General Sherman in the march through Georgia. Mr. Ramminger was in all the fights, including Resaca, Dallas, Kenesaw Mountain, and Peach Tree Creek, arriving at Atlanta, where he participated in the siege. A few days after the surrender, Oct. 14th, Mr. Ramminger was honorably discharged, his period of service having expired. He is still a sufferer from the consequences of his injuries at rebel hands.
He was married to Mathilda Ball, at Schleswig, and they became the parents of nine children. A son and daughter died in infancy. Those still living are named Henry, Jacob, John, William, Anna, Rosa and Margaretha. The mother died and Mr. Ramminger was married to Catherine Wagoner, in Schleswig in 1884. He is one of the prominent, reliable and prosperous farmers of the section of Wisconsin where he resides.
