George Lince, last surviving Civil War Veteran in Oconto County, died at Abrams in 1940; age 91 years
The following tables have information on the Oconto County people who served in the Northern Army of the Republic during the American Civil War, 1861 - 1865.  During the Civil War, Oconto County covered the whole northeastern part of Wisconsin along lake Michigan. G.A.R. posts found in what are now neighboring counties have been included because, at the time of the war, this whole area was Oconto County.

If you are interested in first hand accounts of the American Civil War as it happened please visit this site. The content offered is direct scans of microfilm shot of nearly every issue of the New York Times published during the Civil War years, all presented online in an easy-to-navigate format.
