Company I
Charles Augustus Garcelon - 1st Lieutenant   
Charles Augustus Garcelon's (1842-1935) father, Alonzo Garcelon (1813-1906), was the surgeon general for all the Maine Regiments during the Civil War. Charles and his Uncle,Captain William Waldron, advertised for and formed 'I' Company in Lewiston, Maine in July of 1862. Charles was mustered out of the 16th Maine and into the U.S. Army as a Captain, Assistant Quartermaster and was finally mustered out in 1866. He went on to bcome the Chief Operating Officer of the Pullman Palace Car Company, retiring from that position in 1906. He died in 1935, and is buried at the Garcelon Cemetery, Ferry Road, Lewiston. 10 letters he wrote during the Civil War (including one he wrote on July 4, 1863) are with the Garcelon Family papers at the Edmund Muskie Archives and Special Collections at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine.
He was in the infantry at the battle of Gettysburg during the famous 'holding the line at all costs' on July 1st, and he carried his wounded Uncle, Captain William Waldron, off the field; his letter of July 4th is to his Aunt (Captain Waldron's wife), assuring her that although her husband had been wounded, he was going to be alright. (See page 99 in Abner Smalls ' The Road to Richmond'). All of the other nine letters Charles wrote are verifiable in 'The Road to Richmond'.

Nathaniel Gilpatrick - Corporal   
In the Garcelon Cemetery on Ferry Road in Lewiston, Maine is a gravestone memorializing Corporal Gilpatrick as outlined above, and it also states he enlisted in 'I' Company on July 16, 1862 and was 'Killed in Battle at Fredericksburg, VA Nov. 13, 1862. Age 39 years 1 Mo.' What is very interesting about this is the stone cutter got the date of the Battle of Fredericksburg wrong (an understandable oversight) but also that he was buried in the Cemetery of Charles Augustus Garcelon's family; Charles, along with his Uncle, William Waldron, were the men who formed 'I' Company of the 16th Maine in Lewiston!! It is also interesting that I can find no record of Nathaniel Gilpatrick in the State of Maine Adjutant's reports for the Civil War!! The gravestone has the Civil War Memorial flagholder and flag.. I can't help but wonder if Charles Augustus Garcelon and his family arranged for Nathaniel's body to be sent back to Lewiston and buried in his family's cemetery, perhaps because he had no family of his own and the Garcelon's wanted to take care of one of their own (a Lewiston resident)!! Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

William Hale Waldron - Captain   
William Hale Waldron and his nephew, Charles Augustus Garcelon, advertised for and put together the men who formed 'I' Company in Lewiston, Maine in the spring of 1862, and when the company was mustered in Waldron was made a Captain of the Company. It should be noted here that Waldron was a newspaper man, and had come to Lewiston, Maine fom Boston at the exhoration of his brother-in-law, Doctor Alonzo Garcelon...together they started Lewiston's first newspaper, the 'Lewiston Falls Journal' in 1847. Dr. Garcelon was the Surgeon General for all the Maine regiments in the Civil War, and his son, Charles Augustus Garcelon, served from 1862 through 1866.
William's Valor and leadership at Gettysburg were spoken of by Abner Small in 'The Road ro Richmond on page 99 in the story of the famous 'holding the line by the 16th Maine. Many years later his nephew, Charles Augustus Garcelon, tells of carrying his wounded Uncle from the battlefield, being captured by the Confederates and then let go, and carrying him to the hospital in the 'Church', Charles summary of his story of his Uncle was 'He was a very brave man'.
