He and his brother, Simon, mustered in on September 18, 1862. They were both taken prisoner at the seige of Vicksburg and survived prison at Andersonville. August's life was saved in Andersonville because maggots ate the diseased flesh from his wounds. He was mustered out on August 3, 1865.

Company A
Simon Hansmeier - Private   
Taken prisoner with his brother, August, during seige at Vicksburg. Survived prison at Andersonville. Stories he told his grand-daughter (my great-aunt) include how there was so little drinking water at Andersonville that the prisoners prayed constantly for rain. One day an underground spring burst forth to supply the thirsy men with clean water. All claimed it was divine providence. Simon and August have their names engraved inside the Illnois monument at Vicksburg Military Park in Mississippi.
