Martin Miller - Private   
Martin Miller was born on Feb 14th 1844 in New York City. He tryed to join twins with the New York regiments, but his mother found him eather before or after he enlisted. The third time he went over the river to New Jersey. Martin enlisted in the Company H Tenth New Jersey Infantry 'Olden's Legion' on Dec 1st 1861 at age 17 years 10 months. Martin was with the 10th New Jersey for the battle of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, and other skirmishes.Then on August 17th 1864, at Strasburg. Martin was wounded in the leg and captured along with 7 offcers and 143 enlisted men. Martin along with his captain and a number of other were sent to Danville POW camp, then on Feb 22, 1865 he was sent to Libby prison. On Feb 24th he was paroled. He was hospitalized Annapolis Maryland and on Feb 28th received a 30 day leave. When he returned to his regiment on March 28th 1865 he was assigned to company I. I am not sure Martin participated in the Fall of Petersburg(Fort Fisher), but I am sure Martin was present at Lees surrender at Appomattox Courthouse. Martin was mustered out of service on June 22nd 1865. Over the 10th New Jersey invalvement in the Civil War the regiment lossed.....48 killed.....45 died of wounds.....257 wounded.....224 captured or were missing (60 of whom were recaptured). 190 died by accidents, or disease. The total is 290 men died from the 10th New Jersey in services of their Country . Martin after the war returned to New York City, and worked as a labor. He always mentioned the battle of Cold Harbor 'that Cold Harbor now that was a battle'. Martin was active in the GAR and went to seveal encampments. The wound that he reseived at Strasburg just got worse over the years. On Feb 24th 1909 he fell down the stairs and broke his ribs, and days later he died by disease.....I am now putting together my imformation on the 10th New Jersey, and I am now making a website from them.
