William Thomas Spicely - General   
W.T. Spicely was born in or near Chapel Hill, NC, but his family moved to Orleans, IN (on the southern edge of the state) when he was young. Apparently, this area of southern Indiana attracted a great many settlers from the Carolinas, which made choosing allegiances during the Civil War a very serious local matter.

Spicely served with Zachary Taylor in the Mexican War (1846-47), where he saw action at the Battle of Buena Vista. In this battle, Taylor''s army of 5,000 men defeated General Santa Anna''s 14,000 troops in a pass near the city of Veracruz. He mustered out of that war as a captain, and returned home to Orleans, where he was a well-respected local businessman.

When the Civil War broke out, Capt. Spicely was one of a small group that took the initiative to organize the men of Orange County into the 24th Indiana. This was, apparently one of the first regiments formed in Indiana -- not surprising, since they lived right on the Mason-Dixon line, and were thus facing the immediate threat of Southern incursions.

The 24th, with Spicely as one of its colonels, moved down the Mississippi River from St. Louis to New Orleans through the course of the war. Along the way, they saw action at Shiloh and Champion''s Hill/Vickburg. At Vickburg, they apparently played a critical role in opening the city to Grant''s troops. Spicely himself recieved a serious leg wound at Champion''s Hill, which did not deter him from continuing to fight. He received a special commendation for his bravery in this battle.

The week Lincoln was killed, the 24th participated in the conquest of the port at Mobile, AL -- one of the last actions of the war -- and were sent home soon after. Spicely mustered out as a Brevet Brigadier General.

He lived out the rest of his live in Orleans, where he was regarded as a local war hero. After the war -- now in his late 40s -- he married Maria Overton. They had two sons, Albert and Chester. Albert never married, but Chester had a son, Earl Chester, and a daughter, Dorothy Ida Marie. Dorothy was my maternal grandmother.

August Julius Tzschoppe - Unknown   
Julius joined the Union army as part of of Company F, 24th Indiana Infantry in 1861, shortly after he came to Evansville from Germany. He served in many of the western campaigns, and was with General Grant at the capture of Vicksburg. Unlike many soldiers, he didn't see the war as horrible, but referred to it as the 'greatest adventure of his life.' He had several narrow escapes from death during the war, including facing death by starvation and exposure in a camp in Missouri, and the collapse of a rail bridge in Indiana, in which many others were killed. After the War, he worked as a farmer and a carpenter. He was a member of Farragut Post No. 27, G.A.R., and according to his obituary 'old soldiers knew him, as did scores of others interested in hearing stories about the Civil War.' He was survived by two sons and two daughters.
