We publish below a list of the soldiers now residing in Palo Alto county who took part in the
war of the Rebellion, with their rank and the company and regiment to which they belonged. One
of the number, Mr. Jas. Foy, was a soldier in the Mexican War, while Mr. J.M. Hefley took a hand
in both the Mexican war, and the war of the rebellion. The list may not be absolutely correct,
but is nearly so:
