List of Civil War Soldiers(both sides)
Posted by: Danny Kessinger (ID *****0054) Date: January 15, 2003 at 09:28:19

I know I'm running late on posting this, but I finally made the time to do it. Especially after I read what President Hopeful Gephardt (D-MO) said about the Confederate Flag that flies over a Confederate Soldier monument on the South Carolina's Statehouse grounds."is a hurtful, divisive symbol and in my veiw has no place flying anywhere, in any state in this country,". Thank you Mr. Gephardt for stating your position we now know you will be, or currently are a patsy for the NAACP.
You notice nobody ever screams for the American Indian, if they screamed loud enough about the scars and injustice of the past and present, and pointed their fingers at the stars and sripes, would we have to bring it down? Change our nation's flag? (the KKK carried the stars and stripes first, and also the Christian flag, before the stars and bars.)
OK. I'm off my soapbox. But as a Civil War Re-Enactor I beg people to really read the history, slavery was a backburner issue, slaves in south free-'1863, slaves in north free-'1865(if this was the issue, why wait til after the war. Why not free them first.)

Now to the list.
This is all the Kessingers(with all the different spellings)I have found.

First off lets start with the Confederates since some want to erase these people from history.
From Virginia- Goodall Kesinger 166th VA Militia
Henry W. Kesinger 166th VA Militia
J.W. Kesinger 166th VA Militia
3rd SGT James N. Kesinger 166th VA Militia
3rd CPL Richardson F. Kesinger 166th VA Militia

Jacob S. Kessinger 166th VA Militia
(Lewis?) L. Kessinger Giles Regiment 11th Battalion
Ryly Kessinger 59th VA Infantry Co. C

Erastus Kissinger Bryan's Company 13th Bat.
(Henry?)H.H. Kissinger 24th VA Regiment Co. F
James Kissinger 38th VA Regiment Co. H
Silas Kissinger 86th VA Militia Co. D

From Missouri- Thomas Kasinger 8th MO Infantry Co. C

From Kentucky- Theodore H. Kissinger 1st Reg.KY INF. Co.G

From Mississippi-
Anthony Kessinger 48th Reg.MISS INF. Co.E

John Kisinger 3rd Reg. MISS INF

A. Kissinger 2nd Battalion MISS INF

From Louisiana-
T.H. Kisinger 6th Regiment LA Calvary

John Kissinger Fire Battalion LA Militia

Let's not forget that these men fought to keep the federal government out of their lives and actions. Makes more sense than hundreds of thousands of men fighting over slavery.

Now to the Yankees......
First up, Illinois-
Peter Kasinger Mt.Sterling Rec Co.I 62nd IL US INF
Philip Kasinger Brown County PVT Co.E 16th IL US INF
S.J. Kasinger Peral PVT Co.B 61st IL US INF

John M. Kesinger Ball Rec Co.A 61st IL US INF
Ransom Kesinger (unknown) PVT Co.B 99 IL US INF
Reuben Kesinger Greene County Rec Co.A 61st IL US INF

George W. Kessinger Hillsboro PVT Co.C 70th IL US INF
Jacob Kessinger Carlinville PVT Co.F 133rd IL US INF
James P. Kessinger Carlinville PVT Co.F 133rd IL US INF
Ransom Kessinger Peral PVT Co.I 99th IL US INF
Willis F. Kessinger Mont. County PVT Co.A 91st IL US INF

James H. Kissinger Winchester PVT Co.A 61st IL US INF
William M. Kissinger Lawrenceville PVT Co.K70th IL USINF

(Did you notice Reuben Kessinger's name changed when he was put in another company within the same infantry unit.)

Missouri-
William S. Kisinger St. Charles,MO PVT Co.G 49 IL US INF

Kentucky-
Benjamin Kessinger Hart County CPL Co.A 27th KY INF
Solomon Kessinger Hart County PVT Co.A 27th KY INF

Ohio-

James L. Kessinger Lieutenant 40th Regiment Ohio Vol. INF

Kansas-
Jacob Kessinger PVT Re-enlisted Calvary Co.K
(Jan 5,1864 - Jun 22,1865 Discharged DeFalls Bluff, ARK)

Pennsylvania-
Solomon Kessinger DRAFTED in 1863 in Schulykill Co. PA

Well tha tha tha that's all folks. If I missed anyone let me know who they are so I can put them in my notebook(real pen and paper) no more computer storing information for me. I think I understand the Unibomer's problem with technology, he must have bought his computer at the same place I bought the two of mine so far.

Oh yeah, by the way, only four of all the above was wounded in the Civil War and none of the above died in the war.

Sorry it took so long. Til next time,
Danny Kessinger
