Civil War - Wisconsin Soldiers Buried at Andersonville - Part 2

Records kept by men cannot always be correct. The unfortunate circumstances under which the above names were recorded made it almost certain that many mistakes would be made. Great pains have been taken to verify the facts concerning every death here recorded, still there are many cases of uncertainty. The record, faulty as it must be, is nevertheless, approximately correct, -- much better than none.

The last recorded death at Andersonville was that of Knud Hansen, Company F, 1st Wisconsin Cavalry, April 28, 1865, eleven days after the confederates abandoned the place. They left Hansen and thirty-two others sick there in the so-called hospital. As no record was kept after his death, we have no means to knowing what became of the others.
