Soldier Search

Welcome to the Soldier Search page.  You may click on one of the alphabetical characters to search quickly by last name or you may fill in the form to perform a more detailed search of our database of 15th Wisconsin soldier profiles. The search form does not use ‘wildcards’, but it is possible to search on just the first letters of the information requested. For example, ‘Ste’ would find “Steen’, Stensen’ or other names that begin with these three letters. It is not possible to search for letters within a name or word.

When the results are displayed you may click on the name of a soldier to view his profile. You may also click on the soldiers’ unit to view more information about that company.

If you have military service or pension records, pre- or post-war genealogical data, or a photo of a man who served in the 15th, please contact us at
