Text from "Not Afraid to Go", exhibit at the Acton Memorial Library:
William Hollowell was from Godfrey, Illinois, and served as a private in the 133rd Illinois Infantry from May to September 1864. The regiment had only been called up for a term of 100 days, which they spent guarding prisoners at Rock Island, Illinois. They saw no action, but lost 16 men to disease.
After the war (1900-), Hollowell owned a farm in North Acton. He died at the age of 81 on May 3, 1926.
