Charles C. WILSON, Sergt.; son of Chas. Franklin Wilson, enlisted Aug. 13, mustered in Sept. 22, 1862, as a private; appointed sergeant, Feb. 27, 1864; killed, Sept. 19, 1864, on the battle-field of Opequan. He was not killed in the action, but brutally murdered by a Confederate officer, as he lay on the field, wounded in the ankle, not being able to follow his retreating regiment. A wounded comrade lying near him overheard this young officer exclaim: "Here is a good pair of boots. I will have them. They are just what I need." He then began to pull a boot from Wilson's wounded leg. Unnaturally excited by the pain and terrible situation in which he then was, Wilson gave the officer a smart kick with the foot of the other leg, which he richly deserved, but which caused him, in rage, to thrust his bayonet through Wilson's neck and pin him to the ground. It was a horrible and unnecessary sacrifice, but one of the terrible things incident to war. His body was buried, with many others, in a common trench, and the state of New Hampshire has erected a very fine monument over their common grave. It bears this inscription: NEW HAMPSHIRE ERECTS THIS MONUMENT TO THE MEMORY OF HER BRAVE SONS OF HER 14TH REGIMENT, WHO FELL IN BATTLE, SEPT. 19, 1864, UPON THIS FIELD, AND ARE HERE BURIED IN ONE COMMON GRAVE. Then follow the names, among which is that of SERGT. C. C. WILSON. There appears also the name of his warm friend, Lieut. Jesse A. Fiske of Dublin. Young Wilson was a graduate of the Kimball Union Academy of Meriden, in 1859, and one of the brightest young men of the town. His cruel fate was a blow to his father's household from which no one of them ever recovered. They have all joined him in the higher life. His father caused his name to be inscribed upon a fine monument erected in his lot in Meetinghouse Cemetery, II. 1. His name is, of course, upon the Soldiers' Monument in Sullivan, as well as upon that on the Opequan battle-field, making three monuments upon which his name is inscribed.
