James E. Hall, Maine.

Second Lieutenant JAMES E. HALL.

Lieutenant Hall joined as Sergeant from Bucksport, did excellent service, and must have shown rare ability, for during the absence of Quartermaster Pitcher, Lieutenant Hall was detailed to act as Quartermaster in his stead. Although doing camp duty for the time he served, he performed the arduous duties of that office in a satisfactory manner. The adjustment of the affairs detaining him sometime In Washington, he reached the regiment just in time to receive the fatal bullet in he charge of the i8th of June, 1864. He was a fine 'young officer, and his death was much regretted by his companions.
