(January 2013) Enlarge Grave of David C. Yakey

(January 2013) Enlarge David C. Yakey enlisted in 1862 at Eau Claire, Wisc., in the 25th WVI as a 30-year-old corporal (probably when the photo dates from), and mustered out in 1865 as a sergeant. The 25th was at Vicksburg, Atlanta, and Sherman's March through Georgia and the Carolinas. This cemetery is out in the country about 20 - 25 mi. SE of La Crosse; Viroqua or Westby are the nearest towns. (Other than Avalanche!)
