Comrade Henry Levi Willard
Who was born the
day of
A.D. 1837
Harvard County of Worcester
State of Massachusetts

At Littleton I entered the service as private in Company E. Sixth Regiment Mass. Infantry Volunteers on the twenty-fifth day of August, 1862, and at the close my rank was still the same.


My term of enlistment having expired, I was discharged on June 3rd 1863 at Lowell and never enlisted into service again.

My first engagement in battle took place at Ludlow Lawrence Plantation on the Blackwater, Deserted House, and Siege of Suffolk.


I was never wounded, taken prisoner or confined in a hospital or prisoned.

Among my most intimate comrades were Charles Holton, Frank Goodman, and Lewis Marstin.


"Hardtack" I deem the most important event in my service.

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