He returned home to Albia, Iowa, in the fall of 1860, with a view of returning to the gold fields early in the spring of 1861. The late war of the rebellion of 61, and the call of President Lincoln for volunteers to defend the National flag, changed his base of action, and at the fall of Fort Sumter declared his intentions to defend the Government.

He cast his first vote for John C. Fremont, republican candidate for President ; also voted for Lincoln and Grant twice, Hayes, Garfield. Blaine and Harrison for same office. Was a consistent republican as well as a prohibitionist. Was elected county auditor on the republican ticket in 1869, 71, 73 and 75, four consecutive terms, serving eight years.

Charles H. Bell.

Push to enlarge.
Maine First Cavalry Regimental History.

Private Charles H. Bell, Jr., of Co. D, received a similar wound. He and George P. Andrews, of the same company, were on the skirmish line together, and were seeking partial shelter behind a low ridge. They would flatten themselves upon the ground while loading their pieces, then raise themselves upon their knees, with side to the enemy, and fire over the crest of the ridge. While Private Bell was thus shooting, an unfortunate shot from the enemy struck him in the other end of his prone body, and inflicted a severe wound. His manly pride, however, was superior to the pain of the wound, and in tones of despair, clapping his hand upon the wound, he exclaimed: "Oh, George! just my luck, shot where I can never speak of it ! " 

Bell, Charles H., Jr., Age 19; res. Eastport; mus. Oct. 10, 1861, as private; orderly for Gen. Sturgess, '62; wound. at Shepardstown, July 16, 1863; re-enlisted. Feb. 1,18'64; promoted to corporal. March 1, 1864; wound. June 9, 1864; promoted to sergeant. 1864; mustered out. June 20, 1865.

Author. Burial: Veterans Memorial Grove Cemetery, Vountvill, Napa County, California.

Also note he may have a brother " Loring W. Bell", Same regiment and company. I have his picture as well.
