On information receive from a contentious Civil War buff.

I've always been a Civil War buff and I came across an old Headstone in 'Riverview Cemetery' at Centerville, South Dakota. I'm not a relative nor do I have any idea who he was. I was curious about his service so I googled the 47th Wis. and found him on the roster and hence to your site. His name and outfit were still legible: Corp. A.B. McFarland-enlisted from Utica
47 Wis. Inf.
Craig Bak- Contentious Civil War buff
webmasters note I emailed Craig to thank him:
Thank you being so contentious and notifying me about finding the grave of Corporal McFarland of the 47th. I started my tribute site for the 47th Wisconsin in 1997 to find as many of the soldiers of the outfit that I could and it has turned into quite an adventure to say the least. I make a tribute biography of each individual found and so far I've been notified of 53 Officers or enlisted personal so far. May I ask you if it is OK to use your email address as a contact should any page visitors wish more information on the individual. I will make a tribute page to Corp. McFarland and he will have his tribute here? Thanks also for your interest in the Civil War. It was a terrible time in our nations history.
If you respond I will notify you when the page is up.
