Henry A. Miller - Corporal   
Cpl Henry A. (Harry) Miller enlisted in Co F, 76th PVI (Keystone Zouaves) at age 13 as a musician. He had the distinction of serving with his father, Sgt William Miller, during the campaigns of the 76th until he was wounded at Fort Wagner. He recuperated in Philadelphia, while his father and the 76th were at Bermuda Hundred, Drury's Bluff and Cold Harbour. Cpl Miller sent many letters home to his mother of which I have only the newspaper reprints. The letters give much insight into life in a Civil War Camp. Cpl Miller survived his wound and the war, married twice and had one child to his second wife, who was my grandfather.
