I've found 3 Great Great Uncles military records. First of all, Amos A.- 16164.9At, joined Company H 5th NY Cavalry at the age of 34 in 1861 in Crown Point NY. This unit saw a lot of action, including Bull Run, Antietam, Gettysburg and Appomattox Court House. His two younger brothers got involved after they moved to Wisconsin with my Great Great Grandfather Joseph after Catherine Chilcot Bigalow died (her gravestone stands in the Stevenson Cemetery in Westport NY).
Daniel W.-16164.9Ct joined the 49th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment in 1864 which saw virtually no action (guard duty at some obscure fort).
