William Thomas Wisher - Private   
A portrait and biographical record of Allen and Van Wert Counties, Ohio

Chicago, A. W. Bowen & Co. 1896

William T. Wisher, of Jackson township, Van Wert County, Ohio, was the youngest soldier in the Civil war, as was stated in the National Tribune, Washington D. C., at the time. He was born in Fairfield county, Ohio, May 16, 1848, and was attending school when he enlisted, in Bremen, in his native county, under Capt. Nicodemus Hufford, in company H, Sixty-second Ohio volunteer infantry, and was enrolled September 7, 1861, at Zanesville, to serve for three years or during the war, and faithfully performed his duty until honorably discharged in the field, near City Point, Va., November 1, 1864. He then reenlisted in the same organization, for a similar term, was granted furlough home, and January 1, 1865--the 'cold New Year day' rejoined his regisment, after an absence of only thirty days. It will be seen that our subject was but a little over thirteen years of age when he enlisted, and but seventeen after his long service of over four years at the close of hostilities, and thus gained the proud distinction of being the 'youngest soldier in the war.'
