From the Rolls on file in this Office that William P. Gilbert was enrolled and mustered into service as a Recruit on the 8th day of Dec. 1863, at Indianapolis, in the 8th Cav. (39th) Regiment of Indiana Volunteers, to serve 3 years, or during the war. On the Muster Roll of Co. L, of that Regiment, to which assigned for the months from enlistment to April 30, 1864, he is reported Blacksmith - Present and so reported to Feb. 28, 1865, March and April, 1865, Prisoner of War since March 9, 1865*. He was stationed at Durham's Station, NC May 2, 1865. No evidence that he was in action March 9, 1865, May and June, 1865 Parole Camp - Camp Chase Ohio. He mustered out on Det. HQ Roll June 9, 1865 at Camp Chase Ohio. Co. and Reg. Books furnish no evidence of Hernia in August 1864 as alleged.

Prisoner of War - records show him captured at Fayetteville, North Carolina March 1865, paroled at Boulwares and Coxes Wharf, Virginia, March 30, 1865 sent from Camp Parole, Maryland to Camp Chase, Ohio March 1865, arrived there April 5, 1865, and was mustered out June, 1865. No evidence of disability as alleged. Signed O.W. Benjamin, Assistant Adjutant General.
