Civil War Soldier

His rank at discharge was private.
William’s regiment was deployed to Virginia shortly after its formation in May 1861, and first saw action at the battle of Seven Pines, May 31 and June 1, 1862.  It participated in the Seven Battles Before Richmond (Oak Grove, Beaver Dam Creek, Gaines Mill, Savage’s Station, Glendale, Malvern Hill) on June 25 through July 1, 1862.
