  • Notes 
    • History of Northern Wisconsin.

      F. W. SACKETT was born in Trumbull County, Ohio, 05 November 1847. Was
      brought to Wisconsin by his parents in 1852. Lived on a farm in the town of
      Osceola, Fond du Lac County [Wisconsin] until the summer of 1863, wh
      enlisted as a Private in Company A, Thirty-eighth Wisconsin Volunteer
      Infantry. He served until the close of the war, and was in several
      engagements, commencing at the close of the Wilderness fight and ending at
      the surrender of LEE [April 1865]. He was on the advance line at the battle
      of Hatch's Run, and again at the Petersburg fight.

      After being discharged from the service, F. W. SACKETT entered the printing
      office of the Fond du Lac "Journal," and after serving an apprenticeship of
      eighteen months, started in business with a fellow typo, J. C. WALEHON, and
      established the Weyauwega "Times" in Waupaca County, the first Weyauwega
      "Times" being issued 20 February 1869.

      Mr. SACKETT was nominated for as a member of the Assembly in 1876 and made a
      very creditable run, receiving about five hundred more than his party vote.
      He sold the paper [the "Times"] in Weyauwega in the winter of 1876, and on 06
      January 1877 started the Phillips "Times" in Price County. Upon the
      formation of Price County [20 March 1879, from parts of Chippewa and Lincoln
      Counties], he was appointed County Clerk, served the balance of the term, and
      was elected by a large majority to the same position at the general election
      of 1880.

      Regimental History
      Thirty-eighth Infantry
      WISCONSIN
      (3-YEARS)

      Thirty-eighth Infantry. -- Cols., James Bintliff, Colwert K.
      Pier, Lieut.Cols., Colwert K. Pier, Charles L. Ballard; Majs.,
      Courtland P. Larkin Robert N. Roberts Charles L. Ballard,
      Frank A. Hayward.

      This regiment was organized at Camp Randall, Madison, in
      March, 1864, and was mustered in April 15. Cos. A, B. C and D
      left the state on May 3, being ordered to Arlington heights
      and from there to White House, Va., where they were assigned
      to the 4th provisional brigade, for guard duty.

      On June 9, they were transferred to the Army of the Potomac
      and assigned to the 3d brigade, 1st division, 8th corps, but
      on the 11th they were transferred to the 1st brigade. They
      were under fire in the trenches at Cold Harbor, took position
      in the extreme front before Petersburg on June 16 and the
      following afternoon charged the enemy's outer line of
      intrenchments, capturing them at the bayonet's point.

      The same evening they accompanied the general advance,
      capturing and occupying a second line of the works. They then
      went back to the trenches, where Co. E joined them. Upon the
      explosion of the mine July 30, Cos. B and E took part in the
      advance upon the enemy's works, capturing a position and
      holding it until the afternoon, when they returned to the
      trenches.

      The regiment continued in the siege and on picket duty until
      Aug. 19, when it moved to aid in the capture of the Weldon
      railroad, repulsed an attack from three directions
      simultaneously and fortified its position. It returned to
      Petersburg and in October was under fire for 22 hours at
      Hatchers' Run, after which it took position opposite the
      "Crater" in the front line, remaining there until spring.

      It led the right wing of the victorious assaulting column at
      Fort Mahone on April 1, its loss being over half that of the
      entire brigade, and entered Petersburg on the 3d.

      It was in the grand review at Washington. The one year men
      were mustered out at Tenallytown June 2, and the remainder on
      July 26.

      The original strength of the regiment was 913. Gain by
      recruits, 112. It lost by death, 108; desertion, 55; transfer
      21; discharge, 208; mustered out, 640.

      PETERSBURG, VA.
      FEB. 27TH-MARCH 28TH, 1865

      Petersburg, Va., Feb. 27-March 28, 1865. Sheridan's
      Expedition. On the 27th Maj.-Gen. P. H. Sheridan left
      Winchester for an expedition to the front of Petersburg, the
      object being the destruction of the Virginia Central railroad,
      the James river canal, and the capture of Lynchburg, after
      which Sheridan was to join Gen. Sherman's army in North
      Carolina or return to Winchester. His forces consisted of the
      1st and 3rd cavalry divisions of the Army of the Shenandoah,
      respectively commanded by Brig.-Gen. T. C. Devin and Bvt.
      Maj.Gen. G. A. Custer; one section of the 2nd and one of the
      4th U. S. artillery, and a pontoon train, the total strength
      being about 10,000, men. Mount Crawford was reached on March
      1, and here about 200 of Rosser's Confederate cavalry were
      discovered trying to burn the bridge over the middle fork of
      the Shenandoah. Two regiments of Capehart's brigade swam the
      river above the bridge, charged and routed Rosser, pursuing
      him nearly to Staunton, killing a few of his men and capturing
      30 prisoners, with 20 wagons and ambulances, Capehart's loss
      being 5 men wounded. This caused Gen. Early to retreat from
      Staunton to Waynesboro, where he intrenched a position. At
      Staunton Sheridan detached a part of his command for the
      destruction of some stores at Swoope's station, and pushed on
      with the main column, Custer's division in advance, for
      Waynesboro. At Fisherville, 6 miles from Staunton, Custer's
      advance encountered the enemy's pickets and drove them rapidly
      to Waynesboro. Without waiting for the 1st division to come
      up, Custer sent the 2nd brigade against Early's position, to
      display the force in the works, and directed Lieut.-Col.
      Whitaker to take three regiments of Pennington's brigade to
      the extreme right. The 1st Conn., 2nd Ohio and 3rd N. J., all
      armed with Spencer carbines, were moved to the right and
      dismounted under cover of the woods. When they were in
      position to attack, Woodruff's section of horse artillery
      opened fire with such vigor that the Confederates were
      compelled to lie down behind their embankment. Wells and
      Capehart moved their brigades to the attack in front, at the
      charge, and at the same time the three regiments on the right
      caught the enemy on the flank, the whole movement being so
      sudden that Early's men were completely routed and fled in all
      directions, leaving 11 pieces of artillery, with their horses
      and caissons, 200 wagons loaded with subsistence with their
      teams and harness; a large quantity of ammunition; all the
      camp equipage and officers' baggage, the headquarters,
      papers; 16 battle flags and 1,600 prisoners in the hands of
      the Federals.

      On the 3rd the expedition moved toward Charlottesville,
      which place was reached on the 4th, the bridges' depots, etc.,
      between Staunton and Charlottesville having been destroyed
      during the march. At Charlottesville the command divided, the
      1st division moving to Scottsville on the James river, and the
      3rd, with the wagon trains, along the Lynchburg railroad,
      destroying the bridges and culverts as far as Buffalo river.
      The two divisions came together near New Market, where the dam
      and locks on the canal were thoroughly destroyed. At
      Duguidsville, on the 8th, the Confederates fired on Devin's
      division from across the river, but the 5th U.S. cavalry was
      dismounted and covered the retirement of the rest of the
      division. All the locks on the canal between Goochland and
      Duguidsville were destroyed, as well as large stores of
      Cotton, tobacco and subsistence. Columbia was reached on the
      1Oth, where the expedition rested for a day, and on the 12th
      the march was resumed toward the Virginia Central railroad,
      which was struck at Tolersville on the 13th, and several miles
      of track torn up. The next day Custer directed his march
      toward Ground Squirrel bridge, while Devin moved along the
      railroad to the South Anna. Both bridges were destroyed after
      a slight skirmish with the guards, in which the 5th U. S.
      cavalry captured a number of prisoners and 3 pieces of
      artillery. The 1st division was here ordered to move toward
      Hanover Court House and the 3rd to push south as far as
      Ashland, but upon learning that a considerable force of the
      enemy under Longstreet was moving to intercept the expedition,
      the two divisions were united, the whole command recrossed the
      South Anna and moved along the north bank of the Pamunkey to
      White House landing, which was reached on the 18th. Here the
      expedition rested until the 25th, when it again took up the
      march and two days later rejoined the Army of the Potomac.
      During the movement Sheridan's forces captured 1,603
      prisoners, 2,154 horses and mules, 16 battle flags, 17 pieces
      of artillery and over 2,000 stands of small arms. The line of
      march was marked by wholesale destruction. Sixteen large
      mills and factories 26 warehouses and 8 railroad depots,
      together with their contents of valuable stores, were laid in
      ashes, 47 miles of railroad track, 30 miles of telegraph, 49
      canal locks, 44 railroad and several wagon bridges, 10
      watertanks, and about 40 canal and flatboats all loaded with
      provisions, etc., were completely destroyed.

      Freeman W. Sackett, publisher Phillips "times," Phillips, Price county, was born at Warren, Trumbull county, Ohio, November 5, 1847, and is a son of Alzera and Sarah (Harbaugh) Sackett. His paternal grandparents, Simmons' and Ede (Hayes) Sackett, sprang of old New England families. The latter was born at New Haven, Conn. His maternal grandfather, William Harbaugh, was of German descent, and his wife, Rachel (Beeson) Harbaugh, was born in Virginia. Mrs. Sarah Sackett was born near Akron, Ohio, and now resides at New Cassel, Wis., her husband having died at Waucousta, Fond du lac county, Wis., October 16, 1869, at the age of fifty-one years. He was born at Canfield, Ohio.

      Our subject was about four years old when the family removed to Waucousta, where he spent his boyhood upon his father's farm, and attended the district school in winters, until September 5, 1863, when he enlisted in Company A, Thirty-eight Wisconsin volunteers. The principal engagements in which he took part were the battles of the Wilderness, Cold Harbor, Hatch's Run, White House Grove, Welden Railroad, Mine Fort, Pegram's Farm, Fort Stedman and the siege of Petersburg and Richmond. He was also at Appomattox and the grand review at Washington. After receiving his discharge, July 12, 1865, he returned home. In 1867 he began to learn the printer's trade in the office of the Fond du Lac "Journal." Two years later he began the publication of the Weyauwega "Times."

      In 1876 he came here and started the Phillips "Times" in the first building completed in the town. He is also a contractor and builder.
