Beverly Frederick Wayles Hemings Jefferson, 1838-1908 and we know little else about his life other than his service in the Civil War.  We know that John W. Jefferson ran the American House hotel in Madison, which was later taken over by his brother Beverly who married Ann Maude Smith in 1864.  


Jefferson, Beverly



1st Regiment, Wisconsin Infantry (3 months, 1861)

1st Regiment, Wisconsin Infantry (3 months, 1861)

Organized at Milwaukee, Wis., and mustered into State service April 27, 1861. Mustered into United States service May 17, 1861. Left state for Harrisburg, Pa., June 9. Attached to Abercrombie's 6th Brigade, Negley's 2nd Division, Patterson's Army. Camp at Hagerstown till June 29. Moved to Williamsport, Md., June 29-July 1. Action at Falling Waters July 2. Moved to Martinsburg July 3. Duty at Charlestown, Harper's Ferry and guarding fords of the Monocacy River till August. Edwards' Ferry, Md., July 29. Mustered out August 21, 1861.

We are inclined to believe the regiment as a national guard unit was activated to federal service and likely performed or suffered so badly at the Battle of Falling Waters in July 1861 that it was deemed to be unsuitable for further combat services. This was a common procedure for units to be returned to Governors for disbandment of unit and personnel, especially State appointed officers proven to be ineffective or incapable.
