In August of 1860, the towns of the Brookfield's celebrated the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Quaboag Plantation. The inhabitants of West Brookfield, in common with the rest of the nation, were soon called upon to take up arms to preserve the Union. Over one hundred and fifty men responded, and of those, 30 never returned.
With much pride a list has been complied of West Brookfield's Civil War soldiers. This list will tell of ancestors, cousins, friends, born and raised in the West Brookfield area of Massachusetts who served with the Union Army during the Civil War.
Some of these fine soldiers who "wore the blue uniform" returned safely to their families...and sadly, some did not. For the 150 Anniversary of the Civil War we will remember, on our Biography page, the ones who did not come home .
We have added the biographies of our soldiers, serving with the 15th Massachusetts, who were Killed-in-Action (KIA) or Mortally-Wounded-in-Action (MWIA) at the battle of Antietam and our soldier killed at Gettysburg.
