On the morning of the second days' fight he was ordered to take Jim (Francis V. Randall.

So in obedience to orders he went to the rear, back I think on the Baltimore Pike near a large red barn that was being used for a field hospital. There they remained during that day and night. On the morning of the third day, being anxious to hear from the regiment he left Jim there near the hospital with orders not to leave until he returned.

Then he started in pursuit of the regiment and fortunately found them lying at the left of the cemetery, lying closed column by division and flat on the ground. The shells from the enemy's guns were dropping in there pretty fast, about this time Private Stoddard discovered his approach and raising himself so that he could be seen, shouted, "No dodging there, Mac." The colonel came to him, made some inquiries, told him to send Asst. Surgeon Crandall (who was near by at the time) to the regiment, then go back and find Jim and to stay there until after the battle. On the morning after the Battle they Joined the regiment and were finally discharged with the regiment at Brattleboro, Vt. In November, 1863. he again enlisted, this time in Co. C. 1st Regt.. Vt.

Was in the hospital at Wilmington, Del., at Brattleboro and Montpelier, Vt., and was finally discharged from the service with the regiment at Burlington, Vt.. in .luly, I860.

John F. P. Robie

push to enlarge
John F. P. Robie, featured wearing his uniform and carrying a snare drum, was only thirteen years old when he joined a New Hampshire Infantry Regiment, and he was not alone. He was one of more than 1,500 boys under the age of fourteen to go to war! In addition to helping soldiers march in rhythm, drummer boys like Robie used various drum calls to send messages and signals to the troops. Some were wounded in the course of these duties.

John F. P. robie, was born in 1848, his residence in 1860, was Hillsborough N. H.  He was in the eighth New Hampshire Infantry company F., of the Drum Corps.

The following was taken from the Regimental history of the eighth New Hanpshire Infantry.

John F. P. Robie, of the drum corps, who, of course, were there and assisted in taking charge of and burying the dead, agree in saying that the line was at the crest of  the hill in rear of the lone chimney, about the distance which Durgin has set it, viz., twenty rods, whereas the bodies are shown in the picture as being brought only to the large trees in advance of the chimney, and groups of Union soldiers are there seen.

Speaking of the drum corps, perhaps it is well to say that, at the above time and place, in discussing in regard to who was the youngest enlisted in the regiment, opinion was divided between J. F. Robie and Thomas J. Fitzgerald, both being in years, thirteen and a fraction.

GILLMORE MEDALS, 7th., New Hampshire Infantry.


On the 28th of October, 1863, General Gillmore, full of gratitued to the rank and file of the regiments which had taken so prominent a part in the siege of Morris Island, issued General Order No. 94, Headquarters Department of the South, providing for department medals of honor tor gallant and meritorious conduct during the operations before Charleston, to not over three per cent of the aggregate strength of the various regiments, companies, and detachments that have been in action or on duty in the batteries or trenches. Candidates for these honors were to be nominated by the company officers, and sent through the usual military channels.

The following named men of the Seventh New Hampshire were recommended for Gillmore medals by a board of officers appointed in orders of November 25, 1863, from Headquarters U. S. Forces, Morris Island, S. C, under the provisions of General Order No. 94, Headquarters  Department of the South :

Sergt. Brainard Cummings, Company A : Sergt. George F. Corson, and Private Michael Cahill, Company B: Privates Zenas P. Alden and Robert Miller, Company C : Privates George Parker and Clinton P. Wells, Company D ; Privates Henry Kimball and Robert A. Brown, Company E; Corp. Martin V. B. Perkins and Private Samuel P. Sargent, Company F ; Private Franklin W. Randall, Company G; Privates Stephen H. Price and Otis A. Merrill, Company H ; Corp. George Weaver and
Private John II. Smith, Company I : Sergt. Alonzo G. Dudley and Private George Rainey, Company K.

No record of the dates of the issue of the medals recommended by this board of officers can be found in the records of the War Department.

These medals were called '' Gillmore Medals," and were of broiize, and bear on one side a representation in relief of Fort Sumter in ruins, and upon the other a facsimile of the general's autograph, while upon the bar above the medal, to which the medal is attached, appears the name, rank, compan3% and regiment, of the soldier receiving the same. A certificate was also issued with
each medal. Those awarded to the men of the Seventh were not all issued and presented while our regiment was on Morris Island, some of them being received by the men during the summer of 1864.

Though all regiments participating in the siege were invited by General Gillmore to send in the names of deserving soldiers, a few regiments declined the otfered honor on the basis that every man of the regiment had been " gallant and meritorious."' However this may be, the recipients of those medals may proudly"wear them, for they were faithfully earned.

Some short notes on George W. Bowers.

Company I.

George W. Bowers, Capt.; must, into serv. Jan. 3, '62; capt. at Plymouth, N. C, Apr. 20, 1864, escaped November 3, 1864 ; must out with Co. Jan. 2, 1865, exp. of term.
We surrendered about 11 o'clock a. m. on the 20th of April, and the next day were matched, as prisoners of war, to Tarboro, and thence taken by rail to Andersonville, Georgia. The enlisted men were imprisoned here, and the officers sent to Macon, Ga. Captains Bowers and Dawson, and Lieuts Conley, Helm and Davidson, made their escape, but the regiment remained in prison until the spring of 1865, at which lime over half the number bad died.

Capt. George W. Bowers escaped from Columbia, S. C, and after traveling and hiding for 42 days, succeeded in reaching the Federal lines near Bell Plain, Tenn.

Company I.

George L. Brown, 1st Lieut.; must, into serv. Jan. 3, '62; wounded and capt. at Plymouth, N. C, Apr. 20, '64; must, out with Co. Mch. 11, to date Jan. 2, '65; exp. of term.

Lieutenant George L. Brown.

At the age of 23 George L. Brown enlisted as a private in Co. I.. 101st Regiment, on the 14th day of September, 1861. He was promoted to second lieutenant of his company Jan. 1, 1862, and on March 1, 1863, he was commissioned first lieutenant. To write a history of the activities of Lieutenant Brown
while in the service of Uncle Sam, is but to recapitulate the Regimental narrative, for he participated in every battle, skirmish and reconnoissance in which the Regiment was engaged, from the time it cast its fortunes with the Army of  the Potomac, until it was finally compelled to lower its colors in the presence of  an overwhelming force of the enemy. But even then, Lieut. Brown was saved the mortification of surrendering to the victorious foe in a normal condition. In the fmal charge made by the enemy and before he became a prisoner of war he bad been made hors dr combat by a severe wound in the left arm and breast.

After the capitulation of the garrison at Plymouth, on April 20. [864, Lieut. Brown, owing to his severe wounds, was kept a prisoner at Plymouth until he was abK' to travel. After leaving Plymouth he was confined at Weldon, N. C. ; Macon, Ga.; in jail yard at Charleston, S. C, and for a time in the Old Marine Hospital at Charleston, where he and bis fellow prisoners were under the tire of the Federal batteries. From Charleston he was moved to Columbia, S. C, from where he escaped, and after eluding the enemy until he bad reached east Tennessee, he bad to undergo the chagrin of surrendering to blood-hounds, lie was then confined in the jail at Columbia, and while there, was placed in irons, bucked and gagged, for the simple offense of communicating with a fellow prisoner of war, Maj. Teller, who was held as a hostage. From Columbia he was moved to Charlotte, N. C. thence to Raleigh, and finally Goldsboro. During his imprisonment he escaped four times, but was recaptured before he succeeded in
reaching the federal lines; however, he was only captured once by the blood-hounds, I le was paroled for exchange, Feb. 27, 1865. and owing to the depleted ranks of the Regiment, the near termination of the war, which was then known to be practically at an end. and the fact that he was under parole, he
was mustered out of the service at Washington, D. C, March 15, 1865,

Lieut. Brown was born at Milton, l'enna.. December 6, 1838. Patriotic blood flows in bis veins, his paternal grandfather having served in the war of 1S12. At the outbreak of the Civil War he was engaged in business as a merchant, but he did not rest until be was freed from it, and in the service of his country.

In January. 1863, when Wessells brigade was encamped at New Bern, N. C. it was rumored that the Regiment was to go to Charleston, S. C. Among a batch of papers, sent to the writer, by Lieut, Brown, some of which have been used in the Regimental narrative, one verbatim, the writer found a letter written by Lieut. Brown to his father. This letter explains how these papers came to be preserved, even when everything, pertaining to the Regiment and with it, was lost twice in battle. But it does more than this; it gives an insight into the character of the writer, and will recall to the mind of the comrades an event in the history of the Regiment that most of them had forgotton. The letter is as follows:

Head Quarters Co. I, 101st P. V., Encamped 2 miles from New Bern. N. C, Jan. 16, 1863.

Dear Father : Enclosed you will find copies of papers which I wish you to keep for me. I am well and expect to join this grand expedition of forty days' length. I presume it is to Charleston ; but I dare not say where.  Remember me to all. I will win a bar on my shoulders this expedition or I will quit. Write me soon and direct to Co. I, 101st P. V., Wessell's Division, Hunt's Brigade, Washington, D. C. Your Son, GEORGE.

Theodore Lieb, Civil War.

New Orleans, June 14, 1862.

Theodore Lieb, of New Orleans; George William Craig, late first officer of the ship City of New York, and Frank Newton, late private in the Thirteenth Regiment Connecticut Volunteers, upon their own confession and clear proof, after a full hearing, were convicted of being members of an organized gang of thieves, consisting of seven or more, of which William M. Clary and Stanislaus Roy, mentioned in Special, Orders, No. 98, and now under sentence of death, were principals, bound together by an oath or obligation, engaged, by means of a forged authority and false uniforms, in robbing the houses of divers peaceable citizens of their moneys, watches, jewelry, and valuables, under pretense of searching for arms and articles contraband of war, must suffer the proper penalty.
At least eight houses, as appeared by their confession, were plundered by three or more of their gang, while others were watching without, at various times, and a large amount of property carried off. A large portion has been since recovered.

The heinousness of their offense is heightened by the contempt and disgrace brought upon the uniform, authority, and flag of the United States by their fraudulent acts in making it cover their nefarious practices, and renders them peculiarly the subjects of prompt and condign punishment.  It is therefore ordered that George William Craig and Frank Newton, for these offenses as aforesaid, be hanged by the neck until they and each of them are dead, ant that this sentence by executed upon them at or near the parish prison, in the city of New Orleans, on Monday, the 16th day of June instant, between the hours of 6 a. m. and 12 m., under the direction of the provost-marshal, and for so doing this shall be his sufficient warrant.

Theodore Lieb, being a youth of eighteen years, only in consideration of his tender years, has his punishment commuted to confinement at hard labor on the fortifications at Ship Island, or the nearest military post, during the pleasure of the President of the United States.
By command of Major-General Butler:
Captain and Acting Assistant Adjutant-General.
