Notes Three-quarter standing view of Private Frank Winkler, Company K, 9th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry. Frank is wearing a Wisconsin State issue five-button Fatigue Blouse; equipment belt with percussion cap box and "US" plate (the US is reversed, indicating that the original image was a tintype or ambrotype); leather gloves; knapsack with blanket roll on top; and a fatigue cap. Frank is holding a musket with fixed bayonet in the position of "Order, ARMS". The musket is blurred in the image, making it difficult to determine exactly what type of musket he is holding. According to Frederick Todd's "Military Equipage", the 9th Wisconsin was armed with Belgian Rifle Muskets and Dresden Rifles in 1861. These secondary arms were replaced in 1863 with English Enfield Rifle Muskets.
Franz "Frank" Joseph Winkler was born on December 28, 1841 in Lindwiese, Germany. He enlisted in Company E, 9th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry on October 25, 1861 at Stockbridge, Wisconsin. He mustered out on November 25, 1864 at the expiration of his term of service. He died December 24, 1926 in Chilton, WI.
