Message Board Post:
Hi! This is a random act of kindness post. I am not a Landwehr researcher. I came across this diary in my research in Iowa. I hope somenoe can claim this Civil War soldier who died in Vicksburg in 1863. The reference source is listed below along with the text.
11/8 Preached the funeral Sermon of Victor Charles Landwehr. He was born 1/13/27 at Alten Brochhausen Kingdom, Hanover. His parents were Herman and Margretha Landwehr. He was baptized in early childhood by Rev. Klevers. At a suitable age he was confirmed by Rev. Gerke. He emigrated to America and resided several years near Chicago, Ill., from whence he emigrated to Clinton Co., Iowa. The War having broken out, he enlisted in Company B., 16th Regiment, Iowa Volunteers. He was in service about two years when he took sick and died in the Hospital at Vicksburg. He was an honorable soldier. He is mourned by three brothers: Albert, Herman, and Henry Landwehr; and by one sister, Sophia, wife of Fredrick Gadmann. Peace to his ashes. Amen. Revelation 22:20
