Pvt Hauggi enlisted into the army on October 6, 1873 in Cincinnati OH. His civilian occupation was listed as farmer. He was described as 5-7, light hair, brown eyes with a fair complexion

On October 19, 1873, Hauggi reported for duty at Ft Lincoln in the Dakota Territory & was assigned to Company L, 7th US Cavalry. Company L was commanded by Lt James Calhoun. Lt Calhoun's brother-in-laws were LTC George A Custer & Capt Tom Custer.

He participated in the Black Hills Expedition from June to August of 1874. Between May 17 & May 26, 1876, Hauggi was assigned to sick quarters from being kicked by a horse.

At the Battle of the Little Bighorn Company L was attached to LTC Custer's battalion. Hauggi was killed sometime during the fighting.

Two days after the battle burial details found many bodies from Company L were found on or near Calhoun Ridge & Calhoun Hill.

Hauggi's unidentified remains were likely first buried where they had been found. In 1881 all known battlefield burials were moved to a mass grave on Last Stand Hill.
