A.D. 1839

State of Connecticut

At Hartford, Conn., on the nineteenth of April,1861, I first entered the service as private, in Co. B. 1st Reg't Conn. Vols and at the close of the war my rank was that of a Sergeant.


At the expiration of a time of service, I was first discharged on July 31st, 1861 at New Haven, Conn.


I again enlisted and was finally discharged at Beaufort, S.C. on Dec. 11, 1862 having achieved at that time a Surgeon's Certificate of Disability.


The first battle I was engaged in took place at "Bull Run".


O.S. Furman, S.D. Bennett and B. Robinson were among my most intimate comrades while in the army.


I consider the Siege of Pulaski, Ga. to be the most important event of my army life.
