Biography: BYRON C. WARD Byron C. Ward was born at Underhill, Vermont, on November 28, 1838. As a youth he entered upon a college course, but war interfered and on August 28, 1862, he enlisted as a private in Company G. Second Vermont Infantry. His soldierly bearing soon brought promotion and he was promoted to the rank of first lieutenant. He was in the battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, the Wilderness, Petersburg, Cedar Creek, and Gettysburg. In 1869 Comrade Ward came to Iowa, locating at Prairie City in Jasper County, where he resided for two years. Later he moved to Des Moines where he became a member of Crocker Post No. 12. His interest in the Grand Army of the Republic made him a suitable candidate for Department Commander -- an office to which he was elected in 1914. When he came to the end of his long career on January 18, 1922, a Des Moines newspaper said of him: "Byron C. Ward represented the fullest measure of public service. He was active in everything that is worth while in national, state and community life. Few men find time to do all things Mr. Ward did for others. His devotion to the public good continued throughout his long life of eighty three years". Source: The Iowa Department of the Grand Army of the Republic Page 133
