Charles BUZZELL, a son of Gilman and Eliza (Watson) Buzzell. He was a native of Tamworth, N. H., and came to this town with his parents when about four years of age, and resided here until he enlisted, Sept 6, 1864. He was mustered into service eight days later, and immediately started for City Point, Va., where two of the companies of the regiment were already stationed. Here these men were employed through the winter in building a stockade, in which prisoners captured from the enemy were confined, and drilling for the coming campaign. In February they were set to building corduroy roads in Appomattox swamp. While thus engaged they made several raids through the surrounding country to drive off small bands of the enemy, who were continually annoying them. On March 25, 1865, the rebels attacked Fort Stedman and captured it. The Eighteenth was ordered out, and took an active part in retaking the fort. The next day the men were put on the skirmish line in front of Fort Stedman, and did duty here until the second of April, when Buzzell and a few others were sent out to draw the fire of the enemy. This they did, and Buzzell says in his quaint way, "We must have scared the enemy, for they could not hit a barn door. We lay down on the field--I think I stuck my nose into the ground about six inches--and when the order came to fall back, I concluded that it was no place for Buzzell; so I took my old gun in one hand and my cap in the other, and I guess that the reason the `rebs.' did not hit me was because I made such a dust they could not see." The next day Petersburg was evacuated, and after marching through the city, they were sent to the South Side railroad to do picket duty, and remained there until the surrender of Lee, when they went to Washington and stayed until they were discharged. Here Buzzell was taken sick; so he did not come home with his regiment, but reached his father's house July 3, 1865. He has since removed to the West, and was last known to be living at Smith Centre, Smith county, Kan.

Jonathan W. BARTLETT, Private; born Pittsfield in 1842, son of Josiah and Hannah (Clark) Bartlett. Enlisted Sept 3, 1864, served with his regiment until the close of the war, and was discharged June 10, 1865. He was last living at Woodland, Ind. The small boys of Pittsfield were as patriotic as the men; some of them ran away from home to enlist, and their parents would have to go for them to get them back. Many a mother lay awake nights, worrying for fear her darling boy would leave home to go in the army. There are scores of middle-aged men who will tell how they tried to plan some way to pass muster as eighteen years of age. One man relates how he returned from his work and found his little son some eight years old sitting on the doorstep, looking very disconsolate. "What is the matter?" inquired the father. "I was thinking," said the lad, "how ashamed I shall feel when I grow to be a man. I shall have to tell my little boy that my father did not go in the army." A few months later his father did enlist, and served until the close of the war
