Pvt Co D 12th Wisconsin.
Killed in battle of Atlanta, Ga.

STANNARD, WELLINGTON
PVT US ARMY
CIVIL WAR
DATE OF DEATH: 07/22/1864
BURIED AT: SECTION E SITE 5998

In the battlefield interment record, M. Lampert and W. Hockman, also of Co D 12th Wisconsin, are listed just before W. Stannard. Did not find either in VA grave locator. (H A Keeler, Co H, is listed just after Stannard and he is in E-5992.) Their names were illegible and were recorded as E. Gert and W.F. F--ann. When interred in Marietta National Cemetery, they were placed at the end of the group of 12th Wisconsin burials; W. Hockman in grave E-6001 and M. Lampert in E-6002.

Some of the people who gathered the bodies after the ware and interred them in Marietta National Cemetery had the practice of placing the "unknowns" who were interspersed with "knowns" on the battlefield at the end of a group, instead of "where they lay". That is what happened in the case of the 12th Wisconsin who died during the battle of Atlanta at McPherson Hill.
