Pvt. Daniel S. Bacon, 3rd Wisconsin Light Artillery. The 3rd Wisconsin Light Artillery reached Pittsburg Landing after the battle. They moved on towards Corinth afterwards. As stated in the regimental history, "here the battery met with great loss of men by reason of the swampy nature of the country, breeding fever and other fatal diseases." Daniel Bacon was one of the number who became sick during the advance on Corinth, and he died due to disease at Hamburg, Tennessee on 7 May 1862. He is buried at Shiloh in an unmarked grave.
