At Arlington Heights, Va. on Aug. 6th, 1862, I first entered the service, as private in Company K, 1st Mass. Heavy Artillery. My rank still remained the same during the war and at the close of the war, I still held the same rank.


As my term of service had expired, I was finally discharged at Boston on July 8th, 1864.


I was never wounded or taken prisoner but was confined for a time at Regimental Hospital, Va.


Among my most intimate comrades were Sylvester C. Frost, Chas. H. Bridges, Henry J. Crosby and John H. Melvin.
