Description Still images and biographical material pertaining to Alfred P. Hull, a Mauston, Wisconsin, resident who served in the 9th Battery Wisconsin Light Artillery during the Civil War. The still images include an original mounted photograph of members (including Hull) of an unidentified GAR post posing together on the steps of their post. A letter written by Hull to the Mauston Star newspaper in late 1880 mentions him living in Wentworth, South Dakota, and that he had started a GAR post there. It is possible that the image is that of members of this post. Also included is a copy print photograph of the original group image, and a copy print photograph of an older Hull seated and wearing civilian clothing. Biographical information was compiled by the donor while doing genealogical research, and includes photocopies of service records, pension claims, newspaper articles, and compiled family history. After the war, Hull moved first to Minnesota, before settling in Madison, South Dakota.
