Comrade Henry Davis Parlin
Who was born the
day of
A.D. 1836
Acton County of  Middlesex State of Massachusetts

At Readville, Mass., on the eleventh day of July 1864, I entered the service, as private, in Company E 6th Regiment and at the close, my rank was the same.


As my term of enlistment had expired, I was discharged at Readville on October 27th, 1864 and I never again enlisted into service.


I was never wounded but was confined for eight days during the last of the month of July, in a hospital at Arlington Heights


Luke Smith, George D. Smith, E. F. Wood, Robert Wayne, James Wayne, William Chaplin and Waldo Chaplin were some of my most intimate comrades while in service


I consider the most important event in my army life to be when, we were Guarding prisoners at Fort Delaware.

I Certify that the Sketch of my War service as above written is true as
I verily believe
