C , enlisted as a private Aug. 18, 1862, At a meeting held in Laconia Aug. 26, 1862, by the regiment, he was elected surgeon, and was commissioned as such by the governor, and mustered into the U.

At Warrenton, Va., in the fall of 1862, he was taken prisoner with his father and son, Geo. H. Fowler, who, at thirteen years of age, was serving as servant for his father; but they were exchanged or paroled some months later. He was present for duty as surgeon at every battle in which his regiment was engaged except Fredericksburg, when he was a prisoner of war. At Chancellorsville he had charge of the brigade field hospital, and was operating surgeon of the 2nd Brig., 2nd Div., 3rd Corps at Gettysburg. He was chief operator of the 18th Corps at Drury's Bluff, and on the day of the battle of Cold Harbor, took charge of the 18th Corps hospital, and held this position till the fall of  1864, when he was sent, by the War Department, to Ohio, as one of a board of examiners to inspect the sick and wounded soldiers in that state. On his return, he was ordered by Gen. B. F. Butler to construct a hospital at Point of Rocks, Va., for the Army of the James, and was in charge of the same till the hospital was no longer needed. In this hospital he had 3,500 beds for patients; 500 for attendants and officers; 34 surgeons; 3 chaplains; a quartermaster and a commissary, 5 stewards, 31 ward masters, 25 matrons, 300 nurses, 75 cooks, and 85 officers and men for guard duty.
