Andrew Grund was born in Sweden. He joined the WI 15th Infantry, Company I. The men of his company called themselves the “Scandinavian Mountaineers” but were also known as the “Waupaca Company” because so many of them were living in that WI county when they enlisted.

The army listed Grund as living in Stockholm, Pepin County, WI, age 34, and a farmer. He had blue eyes, dark hair, dark complexion, and stood 5’9”. He enlisted for three years on January 4, 1864 at Stockholm, and mustered at Madison, WI on March 16, 1864 as a Private (Menig). He joined I Company at McDonald’s Station, TN.
