Burial Sites and Death Information - Lest We Forget

Robinson's Battery continues the search for the final resting place of each of its men.  If you know where any of our men are buried, please contact me at lindquist@acd.net.  Far from being macabre, it allows us to to be certain that each of these men, who did his duty for his country, is honored to the best of our ability.  Our goal is that each grave be appropriately marked so that others remain aware of the sacrifices made by these men.

Although events and battles in the East often overshadowed the many engagements and skirmishes fought by the Army of the Tennessee, it was men such as the cannoneers of Battery C, 1st Michigan Light Artillery who marched and fought and died, implementing General Sherman's concept of total war upon the enemy, that brought the Civil War to an end.              

The men who served in the Battery were men who believed in the concept of the Union and voluntarily enlisted to preserve that belief.  They were often close to middle-aged: farmers and factory workers, clerical and business men.  They left their employment, their homes and their families to help wage a war that would have a far-reaching and lasting effect on their country.  Their actions should never be forgotten.

                                    The Gettysburg Address

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.


Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.

The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
