WWI
Returning Men of Battery E, 120th Field Artillery
Formerly Troop I, First Wisconsin Cavalry

All but 10 of the enlisted men of the original Troop I, First Wisconsin Cavalry, as its membership stood during the period it was at Camp Douglas, are returning with Battery E, 120th Field Artillery, which landed at Boston Sunday.

Of the three officers who went out of Stevens Point with the troop and were with it during its stay at Camp Douglas, only one, Lieut. Lyman PARK, is still with the unit. Capt. C. W. SWAN resigned his commission after the re-organization at Camp MacArthur and returned home, while Lieut. Russell MOEN has, since shortly after the first of the year, been attached to Battery F of the same battalion. Lieut. MOEN, however, is expected to be with the Stevens Point men when they return home the latter part of this month.

The names of all old Troop I men who are still with Battery E are believed to be contained in the following list revised from the records kept by Mrs. N. A. WEEK and Miss Ellida MOEN:

Some of those transferred, including BORCHARDT, Guy LOVE and HIRZY, will probably be home at the same time as the others. Frank LOVE, so far as known, is still at Bordeaux and is not expected home for some time.

Below are men mentioned in later years Troop I reunion articles. Rather than lose track of them, they will be listed here.
