Co. A, 8th Wisconsin

I am searching for any information on Private Fredus C. Bacon of Comany A., 8th Wisconsin Infantry. I have copies of his military records from the National Archives, but am searching for anything that might tell more about him and his death. Private Bacon was killed at New Madrid, Mo. on March 11, 1862 by the "accidental" discharge of a comrades rifle.
