George Johnson





























Mar 30 1865

Lieut. Johnson

We regret to learn that the gallant old veteran soldier, Lieut. Geo. Johnson is in a very critical situation. The rebel bullet, which lies under the shoulder blade can not be extracted and is supposed to have injured the spinal column. His friends sympathize with him in his affliction.                                         


May 3 1866


First Lieut. George Johnson, formerly of Company E, Sixth Wis. Vol. Infantry, died at the Traveler's  Home, in this village on the 16th inst., from the effects of wounds received while fighting with the "Old Iron Brigade." Lieut. Johnson was a faithful soldier, a brave officer, a good citizen, and by his fine social qualities won the friendship of all. He enlisted as a private in 1862 and by good conduct and brave actions earned his promotion honorably. A large concourse of friends assisted in paying the last sad rites to the remains of the gallant young officer.
