Civil War Union Army Soldier. Born in Salem, Conencticut, Private Ackert enlisted at Kingston, New York on September 8, 1861 in the 20th New York State Militia, whose designation was officially changed to 80th New York Infantry when accepted into Federal service. Despite the official change, the men continued to refer to themselves as the 20th NYSM. The regiment arrived on the 1st Day of the Battle of Gettysburg with the rest of the 1st Corps and fought west of town from noon until 4PM, when it was compelled to retreat through the town by overwhelming Confederate numbers. At some point Private Ackert was shot through the mouth. After the battle the severely wounded Private was transported to Satterlee US Army General Hospital, where he died of pyemia on July 21. His effects were sent to his mother, who resided in Fayette County, Ohio. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
