Everett F. Abbott - Captain   
This is a copy of an obituary for E. F. Abbott written from Atlanta , GA., Sept 14th, 1864 by W. B. Jacobs. Copied from a book written by Lois L. Abbott Murray, his older sister, published in 1880.
'Captain Abbott was known as a brave and galliant officer; not by his company alone, but by every officer and man in the regiment. I stood with him the day after Chickamauga, the only captains left in our trgiment, by the side of our galliant leader, eol. Baker, as we lay at Rossville, expeting the approach of the enemy. again, we three stood together on Mission Ridge, on the eening of Nov. 26th, 1863, all unharmed. but when we went into this last charge, our brave leader was not with s, and when the victory was won, I found that of the three, who looked together upon the fields of Chickamauga, and Mission Ridge, I alone was left to see this victory of our brave boys, by which the campaign against Atlanta was ended.'
