My 2nd great-grandfather, George W. Maddox, was in the 1st Maine Heavy Artillery, Company L, mustered on 4 Jan 1864, wounded 19 May 1864, and discharged 31 May 1865, His father, my 3rd great-grandfather Samuel Maddocks was a Revolutionary Patriot. I am very proud of both of these men.

The National Park Service is working on a "Reverberations" program to focus on communities across the nation which suffered greatly due to events related to the Overland Campaign. One community we are focusing on is Bangor where many members of the 1st Maine HA came from. We are coordinating an event with authors Ned and Diane Smith which will take place at Mt. Hope Cemetery on the evening of May 24 and would like to use the poem by Rev. E. F. Davis which is featured on this site. As a courtesy we are requesting your permission to do so. We would also like to mention Mr. Woodcock and encourage visitors to visit this website to learn more. I'll await your reply. Thank you.

I have a book by rev. T Gerrish called Reminiscences of the Civil War.
On the front inside cover is glued a copy of a Letter from Robert McAllister to major Fred Low concerning who ordered the charge on june 18th at Petersburg. Interesting reading. It also announces the forthcoming book by Shaw.

Great site. I have a small correction for the info on Franklin W. Morgan. He was wounded as a seaman on June 17, 1864 at Fort Clifton. Googling "frankin morgan fort clifton" gives the navy report of his wounding as the 2nd result. I had also seen it mentioned in Biographical Review that he lost his leg at Fort Clifton. Thus, the transfer date of 1865 must be a typo and 1864 is likely correct Thanks.

My gr-gr-grandfather Peleg Bradford was in the 1st ME Artillery from Carmel. I found his last wooden leg, that he made & wore, at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.org. It is on display at the museum. Peleg went on to live a full life, married had 6 sons and 2 daughters and ran a sawmill & store. I am a descendant of daughter Emma Cynthia Bradford Brooks. She had a son Forrest Brooks and a daughter Eva Brooks Dickinson - my line. I would love to hear from others related to this family.
