                 Obituary. (The Gazette, Stevens Point, Wisconsin)
              A Soldier's Record.
   Interesting account of Army Service During Civil War by the late
                  A. N. Maltby.

A.N.Maltby, who died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. N. Welsby, last Wednesday afternoon, was a Civil War veteran and took part in Sherman's "March to the Sea," and the Grand Review at Washington. Among the possessions he left was a brief account of his army record, which is published below and will undoubtedly prove interesting to Gazette readers.

"I enlisted Aug. 7, 1862, at Tomah, Wis. The company was quartered in Sparta and joined the regiment at LaCrosse. Was mustered into United States service September 14, 1862, with Co. D, 25th Regt. Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry.

The regiment was ordered to Minnesota on October 1, and D. Company was stationed at Mankato to protect the city from the Indians. In December that year the regiment was ordered back to Wisconsin and we marched from Manakato to LaCrosse. Arrived at Madison Dec. 20, when we all got a ten days furlough.

"In the February following we went south, via Chicago and Cairo, Ill., and went into camp at Columbus, Ky. where we stayed until June 1, when we went down the Mississippi river to Vicksburg, then up the Yazoo river to Yazoo City, then back to Haynes Bluff, in the rear of Vicksburg, where we were in the siege until the surrender on July 4, 1863. On July 7 I got a sick furlough home for 30 days, and rejoined my company and regiment at Helena, Ark., Sept. 1, At this time the 25th had only 57 men fit for duty and 800 men on the company rolls. In February we left Helena and went again to Vicksburg and from that place on the 'Meridian March' with Sherman. We were back in Vicksburg at the end of 30 days and then went by steamboat up the Mississippi to Cairo, then up the Ohio and the Tennessee rivers to Mussels Sholes, then by rail to Decatur, Ala. From there we marched to Chatanooga, Tenn., and on the first of May, 1864, started with General Sherman on the Atlanta campaign.

At this time the 25th was in the 2nd Brigade, 4th Division, 16th Army Corps, Army of the Tennessee. This division was in the flanking corps and was all the time marching or fighting. Our first battle was at Resaca, May 14, 1864. The company and regiment took part in all the fighting, including the battle of Atlanta, and the chase after General Hood's Confederates back toward Chattanooga. At Atlanta Co. D. lost just one-half of the company in killed, wounded and prisoners. Of the four captured, three were wounded and died in the Andersonville prison, while the fourth was exchanged.

Before beginning the March to the Sea we were reorganized and our brigade, the 43rd and 63rd Ohio, the 17th New York and the 35th New Jersey was the 2nd Brigade, 7th Division, 17th Army corps, General Mower Division Commander.

The March to the Sea began in Nov. 1864, and before Christmas we had taken the city of Savannah, Georgia. In Jan. 1865 we went by transport to Beaufort, S.C., and captured Fort Pokatolligo. On Feb. 1, we began the march for Richmond, Va. Our last battle was at Bentonville, N.C. Was at Raleigh, N.C., when General Johnson and army surrendered to Sherman. From Raleigh we marched through Richmond and Petersburg to Washington; took part in the Grand Review and was mustered out the 7th day of June, 1865, by reason of the end of the war.

I was appointed corporal Aug. 27, 1862, at LaCrosse, and ser- geant, Oct. 1, 1863, by M. Montgomery, colonel commanding the regiment. I was in every march, skirmish and battle in which the regiment took part and was in command of the company in its last battle at Bentonville, N.C. At the time we were mustered out at Washington, D.C., I was offered a brevet captaincy and refused it."

                      "Was Grand Army Man."
(Abridged.) A.N.Maltby d. at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J.N. although he had been in declining health for several months. Wednesday morning he was taken with hemorrhage of the stomach and from then until his death he was unconscious, except for a brief interval.

Appleton Noah Maltby was an Indianian by birth, having been born at Orange, that state. When he was 17 years of age the family moved to Tomah, this state.....

While on a short furlough Mr. Maltby was married to Miss Clementina Baker of Tomah, Dec. 27, 1862. At the close of the war he returned to Tomah and for many years was employed at his trade of millwright. About 18 years ago Mr. and Mrs. Maltby moved to Oakdale, where he served as postmaster for 16 years, resigning on account of advancing years, he also held a number of other public offices. They came to this city two years ago to make their home with their daughter, Mrs. Welsby, who is their only child.

Besides his widow and daughter Mr. Maltby is survived by three sisters, Mrs. Alice M. Beckwith and Mrs. A.L.Howard, of Greeley, Col., and Mrs. Horace G. Clark of Denver, Col.

.....The following members of the Masonic fraternity, to which the deceased belonged, were the casket bearers: N.A.Week, G.E.Morrill, F.D.Reynolds, P.W.Holt, Arthur Beijer and C.W.Simonson. Interment was in Forest cemetery.
