EVEN the typical soldiers I have been personally intimate with,it seems to me if I were to make a list of them it would be like a city directory. Some few only have I mentiond in the foregoing pagesmost are deada few yet living. There is Reuben Farwell, of Michigan, (little Mitch;). Benton H. Wilson, color-bearer, 185th New York; Wm. Stansberry; Manvill Winterstein, Ohio; Bethuel Smith; Capt. Simms, of 51st New York, (killd at Petersburgh mine explosion,) Capt. Sam. Pooley and Lieut. Fred. McReady, same regt. Also, same regt., my brother, George W. Whitmanin active service all through, four years, re-enlisting twicewas promoted, step by step, (several times immediately after battles,) lieutenant, captain, major and lieut. colonelwas in the actions at Roanoke, Newbern, 2d Bull Run, Chantilly, South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburgh, Vicksburgh, Jackson, the bloody conflicts of the Wilderness, and at Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor, and afterwards around Petersburgh; at one of these latter was taken prisoner, and passd four or five months in secesh military prisons, narrowly escaping with life, from a severe fever, from starvation and half-nakedness in the winter. (What a history that 51st New York had! Went out earlymarchd, fought everywherewas in storms at sea, nearly wreckdstormd fortstrampd hither and yon in Virginia, night and day, summer of 62afterwards Kentucky and Mississippire-enlistedwas in all the engagements and campaigns, as above.) I strengthen and comfort myself much with the certainty that the capacity for just such regiments, (hundreds, thousands of them) is inexhaustible in the United States, and that there isnt a county nor a township in the republicnor a street in any citybut could turn out, and, on occasion, would turn out, lots of just such typical soldiers, whenever wanted.
