Company C
Eugene. B. PERRY
- Corporal
He was known by some as 'E.B.' Perry. He was my grandfather; yes grandfather. He died in 1905 thirty years before I was born. After the war he became a doctor in the small town of Melvin, Illinois and is buried at Gibson City, Illinois. He was discharged in 1864 at the end of his three year enlistment. I know little of his wartime activities other than what I have from the national archives. They did include a letter he'd written from the stockade where he had been held for drunkedness. After his release he was promoted to corporal. (R.Perry, El Cajon, Ca 10-20-08)
