Pvt. Marcus Morton Parmenter was born Sudbury, Massachusetts and raised in Shirley, Massachusetts where he was employed as a farm worker. Trained at Camp Wrightman he joined the 1st Andrew Sharpshooters attached to the 15th Massachusetts Regiment which saw action during the 1862 York Peninsula Campaign. During the Battle of Antietam the 15th Massachusetts attacked the West Woods area on the morning of September 17, 1862. Marcus was killed during that action with reported wounds to the head and chest. Combat reports suggest that Marcus and many others may have been killed by friendly fire from a green New York regiment located behind them in the attack toward the West Woods. The 15th Massachusetts suffered the highest casualties of any regiment at Antietam. Marcus body was lost on the battlefield and he lies in an unknown grave.
