Henry Drimeyer or Dreimeyer, 28th., Ohio Infantry.

Ohio State Records.

Henry Dreimeyet, Private, Co. C., 28th., Ohio Infantry, age 19, Enlisted or Mustered in September 11, 1862, for 3 years.  Transferred from Co. H., to Co. C., Battalion, July 23, 1864.  Mustered out with Battalion July 6, 1865.

Surgeon General Files.

Private Henry Drimeyer, Co. C, 28th Ohio Volunteers, aged 28 years, a somnambulist, fell from a second story window while walking in his sleep, in July, 1863, and, striking on his head, received a severe contusion and concussion of the brain. He was admitted to the Marine Hospital, Cincinnati, Ohio. He recovered from the immediate effects of the accident, but his idiosyncrasy was regarded as such a dangerous one for a soldier, that he was discharged from service August 16th, 1863. Acting Assistant Surgeon John Davis reports the case.

Authors note.  This man needs more research as there seems to be some errors in both reports, even though their the same man.
