John H Towne - Private   
John H. Towne was born in Brighton Massachusetts on September 24,1837. At the time of his enlistment in Co.D he gave his occupation as that of a sailor. He enlisted at Fort Independence in Boston Harbor on July 16, 1861. By the end of that month the regiment departed Boston for Maryland where it spent the remaining Summer & Autumn doing guard duty on the upper Potomac. The oncoming Winter brought the regiment into quarters at Williamsport. As part of the Army of the Potomac, the 13th Mass spent the Spring and early Summer reconnoitering in northern Virginia. In August 1862 Pvt. Towne and the 13th were engaged at Second Manassas opposing Longstreet's Corp at Thoroughfare Gap. On August 30th the regiment was heavily engaged at the Chinn Farm. In September, the 13th was engaged at South Mountain without loss. At Antietam Pvt. Towne saw action in the Bloody Cornfield and near the Dunker Church with the regiment sustaining heavy losses. In the days following the fighting Pvt. Towne came down with typhoid fever and was admitted to a field hospital in Smoketown MD. Despite objections from a surgeon, Pvt. Towne and five other soldiers from the 13th Mass reported back to their regiment with Towne requiring the assistance of a cane to walk. Pvt. Towne was soon judged unfit for active duty and sent to Washington D.C. On January 16, 1863 Pvt. Towne was given a medical discharge from the army. Returning home to Brighton MA, John Towne worked as a sign painter and in 1881 married Julia A. Chubbuck of Scituate. They soon moved to Scituate and lived in the village of Greenbush where Mr Towne went to work for the local company Thompson & Holmes House & Sign Painters. Mr Towne was an active member of the George W. Perry Post 31 GAR in Scituate. In 1915 he was one of three post members on the soldiers & sailors monument committee and was present when that monument was dedicated in 1918. Mr Towne was well regarded by his community and despite many physical ailments was affable and kind hearted to everyone he met. Many photos survive of Mr. Towne at GAR and civic functions. The ever present cane in his hand. Mr Towne's GAR hat with his wartime corp badge stitched on the side survives today at the GAR Hall. Until recently there were old timers that recalled Mr. Towne in their youth sitting on his front porch greeting those who passed by and sharing his stories of the war with the children of Greenbush Village. Mr. Towne passed away in 1930 with a great number of the community turning out to pay their respects.
