Excerpts from Frederick H. Dyer's A Compendium of the War of the Rebellion
Frederick H. Dyer (1849-1917) began collecting archival records of the war in 1867 and spent 40 years compiling a massive "Compendium of the War of the Rebellion" (Des Moines, 1908). Based largely on official government records, that volume contains nearly 1,800 pages of minuscule print and documents every military unit, battle, skirmish or other event. It has been a basic authority on the war ever since it appeared. We provide here only its pages on Wisconsin regiments and its alphabetical list of all battles.
