Biography

ALBERT H. CHASE enlisted from Middlesex and was 18 years old. He passed through much the same experiences as his comrades until we came to Gettysburg. Here on the second day of the fight he was hit in the side of the head by a piece of shell, probably a part of the same shell that killed Colonel Randall's horse. He fell and those who saw him thought that he was killed but he soon began to crawl away and was helped off by his comrades.

He went to the hospital but when we reached Brattleboro he had so far recovered that he was able to come back to the company and was mustered out with the rest, and it was then thought that his wound would not prove so very serious after all.

He lived some twenty years after this and shortly after his death his brother told us that ever after that wound he had had a great many headaches, and that during his last sickness there came a running sore upon his head at the very point where he was struck by the shell, so that he thought that there was no doubt that the wound was the cause of his death although it was so long delayed.
