This list of Winneshiek County Volunteers in the service of the United States in the Civil War, 1861 - 1865, was compiled by William Linnevold, former Decorah postmaster, and as may be imagined, represents a tremendous amount of labor on his part. Public Opinion believes that a large majority of those on this list, have descendants who are now residents of Winneshiek County.
