OF THE SERVICES OF
GRADUATES AND NON=GRADUATES
Union Army or Navy during the War of the Rebellion.
PRF.rAREl) UN'ni-K THE DIRECTION OI'' THE FACULTY, 187I.
Revised and Enlarged, 1905.
At the time of the semi-centennial celebration of the College
in 187 I, the undersigned was directed by the Faculty to prepare
for publication a record of all graduates and non-graduates who
had served in the Union army or navy in the war of the rebel-
lion, so far as their names and services could be ascertained.
This was published in a pamphlet of forty-eight pages, contain-
ing the names of two hundred and forty-seven. Copies ot this
were placed in the Library for distribution among the alumni,
at the successive commencements following.
Since then, the names of ninety-seven others, who served in
the war, have from time to time become known, and it has
seemed desirable that the record should be made more com-
plete by the insertion of their names in a new edition, with
such information respecting their services as could be obtained.
The cost of this has been defrayed by the liberality of some
of the alumni who served in the war and a few others.
It has been ascertained that several of those graduates whose
names are marked with a % in the Quinquennial Catalogue were
not in actual military service, and accordingly their names have
been omitted in this record.
In an appendix will be found a summary, a statement respect-
ing the memorial chime of bells in the tower of the College
Church, and a copy of the inscription on the cannon in the
vestibule of Williston Hall. An index of names has also been
E. P. Crowell.

" It was in the Wilderness battle at Spottsylvania that the
famous charge was made in which the 152nd regiment partici-
pated. It was just before daybreak and in its front were three
lines of rifle pits, and in the rear of them two formidable lines
of log ramparts ; these were about five feet thick at the base
and six feet high, each at the rear commanding the one in
front. As soon as it was light enough to see, the signal was
given and the entire corps pressed forward. x\s the attacking
force dashed over the first and second lines of rifle pits and
captured the swarms of soldiers in them, a wild yell burst forth
from the Union lines, which was responded to by a withering
fire of cannon and musketry. Still undaunted they pushed on.
The color Sergeant was killed, and the color guard being wholly
wiped out, the men hesitated at the third line. Captain David
Hill caught up the flag and with a shout jumped into a section
of the pit in front and alone sent thirty bewildered rebels to
the rear. Another moment and we were pouring over the
works, the colors still carried by Captain Hill, but he was soon
forced to drop them, as he received a painful wound." '
" The shattered hand was a constant reminder of one splen-
did deed of courage, that is worthy a high place in the country's
tales of bravery. It was in Hancock's charge at Spottsylvania.
In command of his company, all on fire with the rage of war,
'Hardin's History of Herkimer County, New Vork.
he commanded : ' Come on, boys ! ' and dashed ahead. The
field was covered with smoke, and the impetuous officer was
soon lost to view. Suddenly he found himself on the very
brink of a rifle pit, swarming with rebels. ' In one instant,' he
said, ' every deed of my life flashed before me, for that place
was certain death.' Without a pause he jumped directly into
their midst, thundering : ' Surrender. Lay down your arms ! '
And such terror did his aspect cause that every gun fell.
When his line came up, thirty-two prisoners were filing out at
his command. Over six feet tall, black-eyed, black-haired,
bearded, swarthy, with a voice like a cannon's roar, he must
have seemed in that supreme moment a very demon of wrath
or the very god of war. Later in the day he found himself in
command of his regiment, every other higher officer dead or
disabled. Leading another advance, the flag in one hand,
three color-bearers having been shot down, he received a bullet
through his right hand. The sword whirled away from him
and he fell. He turned the command over to a sergeant and
left the field. That night 82 out of 600 men reported at roll
call, and but three of these were unwounded. Captain Hill
was there, and a soldier brought in the sword with the bullet
firmly embedded in the hilt. In the New York draft riots, he
was in command of the first boat load of troops that landed
and marched them down a gang plank at charge bayonets, into
a howling mob. But they dared no violence in the face of
such a man leading such men." ' *i9oo.
