Enlisted Company C 43rd Wisconsin. Carpenter, builder, farmer. Member of Grand Army of the Republic (Buford Post, Ogden, Iowa).

The 43rd Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry

This regiment was recruited and organized pursuant to the call of July, 1864, under the superintendence of Colonel Amasa Cobb, formerly in command of the 5th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, at Camp Washburn, Milwaukee, the first company being mustered into the United States service, August 8th, and the last, October 8th, and left the State under orders to proceed to Nashville, Tenn., on the 10th of October, 1864.

Arriving at Nashville, the regiment, under orders, proceeded by rail to Johnsonville, on the Tennessee River, where it encamped on the 15th of October. This place was an important depot of supplies, and was the terminus of the military railroad from Nashville. It was situated 110 miles from Paducah, on the Tennessee River.

The importance of effectually guarding this point manifests itself at once. Here Colonel Cobb was appointed post commandant, and Lieutenant Colonel Payne assumed command of the regiment. At this time this important depot was menaced by the approach of the forces of General Hood. The rebels, on the 4th of November, posted themselves on the opposite bank of the Tennessee, and opened fire upon the position of Colonel Cobb, the regiment losing one man killed, and one wounded. The Forty-third remained at Johnsonville until the 30th of November, and them marched by way of Waverly, through an almost unbroken wilderness to Clarksville, on the Cumberland River, where it arrived on the 4th of December. Remaining till the 28th, they moved up the Cumberland River and arrived at Nashville in the evening. On the 1st of January, they left Nashville and moved to Decherd, Tennessee, by rail, where six companies of the regiment went into camp, and four companies, under the command of Major Brightman, were detached to guard the Elk River Bridge. Here they engaged in provost and guard duty on the line of the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad. In the beginning of June, they returned to Nashville and were mustered out of service on the 24th of June, and soon after returned to Milwaukee and were disbanded.
