Worthy Prentice enlisted from Osceola
with Co B, Second Wisconsin Cavalry Volunteers and served with this outfit during the
Civil War until the close of the war. He was sworn in at Lacrosse. He was mustered out of
the service at Austin Texas, by the governor of Wisconsin. His military rank has not been
determined at this time. This information was taken from newspapers articles giving
tribute to his services in Polk Co at various community celebrations. Polk Co Seat also
has considerable information on his life history.
We hope to provide more information about
Mr. Prentice's life in the future.
