I want to thank Tom Boudreau for his contributions to my Great -Uncle, Bryon D Matthews's information. It's interesting that he tented with several men of the Nash family. I'm most likely a distant relation to them on my Mother's family tree. Byron is on my father's side of the family.

THANK YOU! Your site is the best place we've found for accurate, concise compilation of relevant facts on Gen. George Stannard. It is so well put together that we are including the page on Gen. Stannard with our submission to VT Historical Preservation for a roadside marker. Our wording is not from your site, but other gatherings and endless examinations(strict limits on # of characters, words,etc.). Research on Stannard is okay for during War, but lacking before and after. I'm part of General George Stannard House Restoration Committee. We are awaiting Act 250 approval, and submitting Stannard for a Medal of Honor. Please check out our VT in the Civil War Heritage Trail on our web page. Thanks again, you are on inspiration.

Love your website. I am the author of "I Was Detailed to the Regimental Band, Volume One, Massachusetts," and "Volume Two, New Hampshire & Vermont." I am currently in the final edit of "Volume Three, Connecticut, Rhode Island & Maine." The US Army Bands website info on the band at Fort Sumter is incorrect, and they have been told. The Sumter Band was the 1st U.S. Artillery, a regular army band, not Chandler's Band from Portland,a civilian band. From Capt. Doubleday's book, Reminiscences of Forts Sumter and Moultrie: "List of Officers and Enlisted Men present at the Bombardment of
Fort Sumter, April 12th and 13th, 1861.
Regimental Band, First Artillery.
Sergeant James E. Galway [bandleader] not Dan Chandler and none of those listed men above ever played in Chandler's Band which was still in Maine in April,'61 but members did serve with the 1st,10th and 29th Maine. I have no idea how the US Army came upon such erroneous information.

Admin reply: John, thanks for the information, I'll fix the article.

I found that link years ago - and now it doesn't work, and I couldn't find it by searching the Army Band site. Do you have a valid link for it?

Thanks!

Hi.

We have a picture of Daniel F. Skinner, who has a page on the Virtual Cemetery (buried in the Old Cemetery in Chelsea, VT).

I can e-mail it to someone if you'd like it for that page.

Thanks.

I believe George W Badger was a 3 times great-grandfather of mine and Alphonzo Badger was his son, William Badger may be related too. Josephine Badger later Luther was my 2 times great-grandmother and a sister to Alphonzo. Josephine's daughter was my great-grandmother Lillian Gertrude Luther later Smith. Alphonzo died at Salisbury Confederate prison in 1865, to my amazement and sorrow I found out my 2 times great-grandfather James Parsons of the 16th. Maine died there to in Dec. of 1864 and is buried in a trench grave. I've been to Alphonzo's grave Pine Hill Cemetery Sharon Vt. I

Thank you for this website. My GG grandfather was Harrison S. Way. I have a picture of his grave from Kendall (Pine Grove) Michigan that I would like to send you for inclusion in your database. I also found a picture on line of the vermont 6th, company E standing in formation in Washington, DC. Unfortunately, no pictures seem to exist of my GG grandfather so I am unable to identify him in the picture. Continuing to search. Thanks again. Jeff

My relatives Eugene, Orange, Samuel Ballard were in the 17th Vermont. Samuel Ballard was killed in the Wilderness Campaign andis buried in the Fredericksburg National Cemetery. We visited his grave a number of years ago. I am the Historian for the Milton Vermont Historical Society and on a committee to save the General George Stannard House in Milton Vermont. This is by far one of the most helpful and interesting websites I have ever visited. Jim Ballard Milton, Vermont
