Comrade Delette H. Hall
Who was born the
day of
A.D. 1843
Bolton County of  Worcester State of Massachusetts

At Camp Chase, Lowell, Mass., I first entered the service, as private, in Company E 26th Regiment Mass. Vet. Volunteers in September 1861.


While in service I held the rank of Corporal and also that of a Commissionary Sergeant and was promoted on October 20th, 1864. At end of war I still held the rank of Commissionary Sergeant.


On January 1st, 1864 I was first discharged at New Iberia La. and the reason was because I needed to be re-enlisted.


I was re-enlisted and at Winchester Va on April 14th, 1865 I was finally discharged per Special Order No 92 super-numerary consolidation of regiment.


The first battle I took part in was at Bay on Lafourch Crossing, Louisiana and Sabine Pass, Texas.


Sept. 19th, 1864, I took part in the engagement at Winchester, Va. (Opequan Creek); on Sept. 22nd, 1864 at Fisher's Hill, Va., and Oct. 19th, 1864 at Cedar Creek, Va.


I was confined in March, 1864, at Regimental Hospital, N. C. and at Alabama Cotton Press.


Among my most intimate comrades were John. H. Fletcher, S. R. Burroughs, James F. Upham and Frank H. Stevens.


What I considered the most important event during my army life was the campaign in Shenandoah Valley, Va., under Gen. Phillip H. Sheridan in 1864 and 1865
