This page is dedicated to the memory of those who served in the Civil War from Clark County, Wisconsin. After the war, veterans from many other counties and states came to Clark County. If you are looking for your Civil War Ancestor, look in our Index. We have over 500 names listed from the various census' and from the messages that have been posted on the Records Board. If we missed anyone, please email Allan Wessel and I will add them to the index.

The Book Civil War Soldiers in the Heart of Clark Co., Wisconsin is a tribute to the civil war veterans from the heart of Clark County.  The booklet is available by mail from Janet Schwarze.
