Moritz Wenzel - Private   
Moritz Wenzel was born in Birkehain, Saxony, in 1841. He came to the U.S. with his parents in 1841 settling in Wisconsin. He enlisted on Nov. 21, 1863. His regiment left Milwaukee on April 18, 1864 for Alexandria, Louisiana. The most lethal foe they would face was disease. Of the 1088 total strength of the unit, 271 enlisted men died from disease. They saw action at the battle of the Spanish Fort near Mobile, and later were sent to Brownsville, Texas--probably to try to cut off any attempted escape by Confederate leaders. Moritz died Dec. 9, 1882 in Prescott, Wisconsin.

Noel Nathaniel Merrick - Private   
The 35th Infantry regiment was organized at Camp Washburn, Milwaukee, WI, the last company being mustered into the service of the United States on the 27th day of February, 1864. The regiment left the state on the 18th day of April, proceeding to New Orleans, and from thence to Port Hudson, where a few weeks were spent in guard and patrol duty. In August the Thirty-fifth was assigned to active campaign work in Louisiana and Arkansas, in which it continued until February, 1865, when under orders it proceeded to New Orleans and joined the forces in the campaign against Mobile. After the surrender of the Confederates at this place the regiment continued until June in service in southern Alabama. It was then transferred to Brazos Santiago, TX, and continued in active service at different points near the mouth of the Rio Grande until March 15, 1866, when it was mustered out of service. It returned to Madison, WI, and was finally paid off and discharged on April 16, 1866.

The histories above, unless otherwise noted, are adopted from Charles E. Estabrook, ed., Records and Sketches of Military Organizations, (Madison, 1914).
