Civil War Veterans from Bremen and Community

Compiled by the Bremen Public Library, Bremen, Indiana

This list was initiated by extracting records from our obituary database where mention was made of the individual serving in the Civil War. Additional sources were 1902, 1909, and 2001 veteran memorial listings from the Bremen Enquirer. If you know of a Civil War veteran from Bremen that we have not included on this list, or have additional information on a veteran that you would like to share, please contact us and provide information so that we may honor the veteran on this list.

Where noted, regiment information was provided by Derek Jensen using either NPS, the National Park Service Soldiers and Sailors Database, or ADJ, various volumes of the 1865 Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Indiana. Information not available in the obituary, or otherwise annotated, was taken from the veteran's memorial listing on Findagrave.
