The following is a copy of one of the collections of Dr. Lyman C. Draper, which are preserved by the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. The paper is called “The Preston Register,” possibly because the authorship was attributed to Col. William Preston. There are, however, some errors in the list, particularly in regard to names, which Colonel Preston would not have committed:
“A register of the persons who have been either killed, wounded, or taken prisoners by the enemy, in Augusta county, as also such as have made their escape.”
