Alexander Brown

Alexander Brown was the Second Sergeant Major. He was a private of Company E; was wounded at Shiloh at the front; wounded at Corinth at the front; always behaved with great gallantry, and was discharged on February 5, 1863. He has filled positions of trust and honor since the war, and has behaved in civil life with the same true heroism which characterized him in action. He now resides at Keosauqua, Iowa.
