This paper traces tt1e Twenty-fifth Regiment Infantry Wisconsin Volunteers' participation in the Civil War. Its members were recruited from western Wisconsin in 1862 with an original strength of 1018 men and were involved in operations in the western and southern theaters of the war from 1863 to until the end of the war in 1865. The Twenty-fifth lost more men than any other Wisconsin regiment. But, a majority of them died from disease rather than from combat. It spent its first year of duty serving in non-combat situations in uncomfortable weather and camp ccnditions, which dealt a severe blow to sita health and morale. It spent the last two years serving in campaigns of important consequence to the outcome of the war. It participated in the siege and capture of Vicksburg and served under Sherman in his historic campaigns against Meridian, Atlanta, Savannah, and the Carolinas.
