We all remember his bright, cheerful face and genial disposition, and the excellent rank he took as a mathematician.
He left us during Sophomore Fall, on November 4, 1861, and immediately entered the
service of his country, enlisting in Company F, Second Regiment, U. S. Sharpshooters.
He remained a member of that company as Sergeant, serving with distinction and
honor, until he was taken a prisoner by the Confederates at the battle of the Wilderness,
on May 7, 1864.
He was taken to the stockade at Andersonville, Georgia, where he died
September 2, 1864, probably of starvation. His body was never recovered, and not
until after the war was over was the place of the interment of his remains known. His grave at
Andersonville was then identified by Miss Clara Barton as No. 7606.
