Wis. Vol.
Sept. 19, 1863
Died Sept. 20, 1863
at Chickamauga
Aged 33 yrs. 9 ms.
He has gone to the last
long march, to the land
where nevermore shall
the bugle sound reveille,
or the dreadful cannon
roar. He who dies
for country dies not, but
liveth evermore

The Heg burial site  is located at the Norwegian Lutheran Church and cemetery, at the intersection of Heg Park Road and Norway Hill Road, in Waterford, Wisconsin 53185.
