References, Sources, and other notes:
Basic information from the State of Wisconsin1 and the History2. Thanks to Daniel Tuttle Murray for the pointer to the Corporal, and family genealogists for further details.
Another of the 4 Tuttle brothers in the Company, Franklin Lorenzo was killed in action in October 1861 at Bolivar Heights, VA, near Harpers Ferry, and his name (as L.F. Tuttle) is on a gravestone in Antietam National Cemetery, Sharpsburg. A Daniel A. Tuttle, with death noted at Bolivar in October 1861 is reported buried in the Poolesville Methodist Episcopal Church Cemetery, Poolesville, MD. It is possible that the records have confused the brothers and Franklin Lorenzo was buried in Poolesville and Daniel at Antietam.
