SAUK CITY - The names are numerous, the stories violent, and the endings often tragic. Residents like Christian Baumtgarth, Jacob Kuntz, Erhart Kindschi, Herman Roediger, Nathanial Burgess and Alva Page, all killed in action or succumbed to disease during the American Civil War.
They died from disease and on battlefields in places like Arkansas, Missouri, Louisiana and Virginia.
These few names represent the many soldiers from Prairie du Sac and Sauk City who served and died in the Civil War.
