New Holstein's Calumet County, Civil War Fatalities
I found this on a center platform type area in the New Holstein City Cemetery while I was there
indexing the cemetery. I thought it may be of use to someone, so I copied it down, had the german writing
translated and both are below along with the names. I hope it is of use to someone researching this county.
Above the names was the inscription as follows:
"Gewidmet Unseren Kriegern 1861-65"
Translated it says: "Dedicated to our soldiers in the War of 1861-1865."
Below the following list of names was this inscription: "Kein Schoen'rer Tod Als Fuer Das Vaterland zu Sterben".
Translated it says: "There no better death than to die for your fatherland (homeland)".
On the side next to the names is one last inscription that says as follows: "Gewidmet Vom Damen
Unterstuetzungs Verin 30, Mai 1907"
Translated is says: "WIdowed Woman Support group May 30, 1907".
Below is the list of names as they appeared on this monument. I did not alphabetize them but left them
just as they are placed on the monument.
