The Sixteenth Wisconsin
The Cincinnati Gazette's Tennessee River correspondent, writing from near Corinth, Mississippi, speaks of one of our regiments as follow: -
"The Sixteenth Wisconsin is a full regiment, splendidly equipped, and consisting of the most earnest looking Yankees and hardy lumbermen that I have seen. They are now for the first time in the filed, but there is no fear that they will fail to do their duty."
It will be remembered that Juneau Co. is represented in this regiment by the Northern Lights, recruited at Mauston. - We have no fear but the Juneau County boys will acquit themselves creditably in the great battle that is soon to be fought near that point.
