(If there are state digraphs above, this soldier spent some time in a state or national soldiers' home in that state after the war)

Remarks: Despite what the gravestone says, this is Winfield Scott Robinson of the 9th Vermont. The information on the gravestone agrees with what was on the application, which also gave his date of death as 11/5/1878. But that too is wrong, as he died, according to his death certificate, on 11/5/1877.

Webmaster's Note: If this soldier enlisted before 9/1/62, and was with the regiment on 9/13/62, he would have briefly been taken prisoner along with the entire regiment at Harper's Ferry. Read the unit's Organization and Service for details.
