Charles H. Bell.

Push to enlarge.
Maine First Cavalry Regimental History.

Private Charles H. Bell, Jr., of Co. D, received a similar wound. He and George P. Andrews, of the same company, were on the skirmish line together, and were seeking partial shelter behind a low ridge. They would flatten themselves upon the ground while loading their pieces, then raise themselves upon their knees, with side to the enemy, and fire over the crest of the ridge. While Private Bell was thus shooting, an unfortunate shot from the enemy struck him in the other end of his prone body, and inflicted a severe wound. His manly pride, however, was superior to the pain of the wound, and in tones of despair, clapping his hand upon the wound, he exclaimed: "Oh, George! just my luck, shot where I can never speak of it ! " 

Bell, Charles H., Jr., Age 19; res. Eastport; mus. Oct. 10, 1861, as private; orderly for Gen. Sturgess, '62; wound. at Shepardstown, July 16, 1863; re-enlisted. Feb. 1,18'64; promoted to corporal. March 1, 1864; wound. June 9, 1864; promoted to sergeant. 1864; mustered out. June 20, 1865.

Author. Burial: Veterans Memorial Grove Cemetery, Vountvill, Napa County, California.

Also note he may have a brother " Loring W. Bell", Same regiment and company. I have his picture as well.

Saloon Owners Of Leavenworth, Kansas, 1857-1867.

Two things comes to mind when we talk about the old west, Cowboys and the Saloons.  Most people think All the old west towns of Kansas had saloons this can be blamed on television shows and the movies.

In truth many Kansas towns had no saloons at all.  A small town may have one or two saloon. The larger Kansas town may have so many saloons that they almost out number the businesses of the town. Take Leavenworth Kansas, not to be confused with ( Fort Leavenworth ), in a span of ten years it had 52, saloons.

William McGinness.

William McGinness, First Lieutenant; Indiana 75th., Infantry, Co. H., Residence Roanoke; Commissioned August 6, 1862; Mustered in August 19, 1862; Promoted Captain.  Captain Commissioned December 31, 1862; Mustered in January 15, 1863.  Died a prisoner of war at Savannah, Georgia, August 31, 1864.

In this charge, about 6 p.m., that Captain William McGinness of H Company was wounded in the right leg by the fragment of a shell, and taken prisoner, and Corporal Peter Mulrine of the same Company was killed.  The piece of shell which wounded Captain McGinness, tore an ugly hole in his knee and injured the ligaments of his leg behind the knee. He was left on the field and captured, taken to Libby prison at Richmond, Va., from thence to Andersonville, and finally to Savannah, Ga., where, under the effects of his wound, and the treatment he received as a prisoner, he died August 31st, 1864.

The brave and good Captain McGinness now peacefully sleeps in the beautiful cemetery at Savannah, Ga., near the broad Atlantic, whose wild majestic waves sing his requiem, as they beat up against
the sandy shore. He was cheerful and gallant, and his death was sincerely and deeply deplored by all the members of the A braver soldier never buckled on a sword nor handled a musket. Three of his sons were in the war for the Union—two of them belonging to the Forty-fourth and the other to the One hundred and thirty-seventh Indiana Regiments.

To perpetuate the memory of Captain McGinness, the G. A.R. Post of Roanoke, Huntington county, Indiana, has assumed his name.

Charles Lane,Ohio.

Battle of Atlanta Georgia,July 22-28,1864.

Push to enlarge.
Among those who fell to rise no more in the first victorious charge made by the 81st Ohio, was Captain Charles Lane, commanding Company K. A rebel bullet pierced his head, and his death was instantaneous. To say that he died at his post in defense of his country, gives him an immortality of honor on the bright roll of his country's heroes ; to say that he was beloved by his men, and respected by his fellow officers ; that he was one of the very few in the army possessing firmness sufficient to resist its temptations; that his private character was stainless^ that his example was that of a noble Christian soldier all this may render his memory dear to his friends, and reconcile them in part to his loss. But around his widowed and orphaned hearthstone are lonely hearts gathered to whom no eulogy can bring the balm of consolation. Theirs is a grief too sacred and tender for h II man touch. 

First Lieutenant Charles Lane, promoted to Captain, Feb. 20, '63 ; killed in the battle of Atlanta, July 22, '64.
