Racine County's Civil War Dead

Transcribed from the Racine County Militant, an illustrated narrative

of War Times, and a Soldier's Roster - a Pioneer Publication written by

Eugene Walter Leach, undertaken in the interest of patriotic americans

in Racine County, Wisconsin.



"All that a man hath will he give for his life," said the Devil, when

he sought an opportunity to tempt that most patient man, Job. As a

general statement the saying was false then, and is not true today. It

has been a lie always. There has never been a time when there were not

men and women in every community of every country, who were ready to

hazard their lives, and give them up if necessary, for something they

held more dear. When Satan's estimate is true of a man, that man's

life is not worth saving.

The following lists contain the names of all Racine county men in the

Union armies who lost their lives in the Civil War. It is unprofitable

and ungrateful to inquire into or question personal motives or animus;

it is enough to know that they made the sacrifice, and it is now the

duty of the people of this county to see to it that the memory of their

martyrdom be not allowed to grow dim. The names of these men, and the

story of their heroism should be made familiar to every school boy and

girl in the county, as a matter of right to the school children, as

well as of justice to the memory of the soldier.
