Biography   Robert Powrie


Robert Hutchinson Powrie was born 27th July  1842, in Kinnoull, Perthshire, Scotland. His family came to Wisconsin when he was 12 and settled near Sussex, Waukesha County.  Five years later when he was 18, Robert Powrie enlisted in the Northern Army and soon became the first musician of the 5th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, Regimental Band (Company F).  He served the entire four years of the war and wrote some 50 letters including comments to his cousins in Scotland, describing his experiences at Antietam, Fredericksburg and the Wilderness - a mixture of the horror and humanity of war.  During his time as a soldier he often carried stretchers and fought.  He often sketched military men, including General Grant.    ...  Displaying 750 of 2356 characters.
