 Mauston, Jueanu County, Wisconsin

Enlisted in the Civil War as a Principal
Musician in the 122nd Ohio Infantry Regiment.

Patterson was awarded the Medal of Honor on
May 13, 1898 for his act of bravery at the
Battle of Winchester, Virginia on
June 14, 1863.

After the war Peterson made Mauston,
Wisconsin his home for 55 years. Peterson
died March 3, 1922, and is buried in the
Oakwood Cemetery, Mauston, Wisconsin.

The  memorial is located on the grounds of the Juneau County Courthouse on eastbound East State Street / U.S. 12, Wisconsin Highway 16 / 58, County Highway G, between Oak Street (to the west) and Hickory Street (to the east), Mauston, Wisconsin 53948.

NOTE: This street is VERY busy -- with transport trucks, construction vehicles, and just a lot of traffic. Had to be very careful, as drivers were loathe to recognize a pedestrian in their midst.

The memorial is located in front of the Juneau County Courthouse.
