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.
