    Notes 
    • He was recruited in 1855 as a lieutenant in the rifle battalion at West Newbury, commanded by Maj. Ben Perley Poore. He was also a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, and was discharged September 14, 1857.

      At the outbreak of the Rebellion he was in a position where he could be of much service in raising troops and sending them to the front. As a selectman of the town, in 1861, he had full opportunity to exercise his abilities in that line, and also in drilling volunteer companies. In 1862, he volunteered as a private, raised a company, was made captain, and took it to the front in the Forty-eighth Regiment, Massachusetts Infantry. He served his term in Louisiana, at Port Hudson, Donaldsonville, and other places on the Mississippi River, and was in every battle in which his regiment was engaged. His record, as copied from the records in the adjutant-general's office in Wahington reads: "Was not absent from his command during his term of service." He was promoted to the Lieutenant Colonelcy of the Regiment (the Lieutenant Colonel having been killed in battle), received the flag of truce which surrendered the stronghold of Port Hudson, and for a considerable time was in command of the regiment, and also for a short time in command of his brigade.

      He escaped unwounded, although prostrated by the explosion of a shell, and lay on the battlefield all day from early morning till dark, when he was carried to the rear by the ambulance corps. He was complimented by the general of his division for coolness under fire.

      After his discharge from the army, September 3, 1863, he was elected a representative to the General Court in Boston. For twelve years, he held the office of town clerk, and for fourteen years that of registrar of voters in West Newbury.
