Excerpt from a letter written by Captain Grafton Norris, Company C, 11th Maine regiment on 15JAN65:

Lieut. Pane was shot through the arm the 14th. of August and has but little use of it, came back to the regiment fought with us the 7th.of Oct. and again on the 13th of the same month when he was struck by a bullet which cut a piece out of his nose knocked his front teeth out passed through his tongue and down into his throat and had to be taken out through the tongue again. He is still here for duty lisps a little but that donít injure such a man as he is. These are the officers that are now with us that have been wounded. I might go on with the enlisted men for half a dozen pages that have been severely wounded that are now at the front and for duty. Donít you think these men will admire those _______ at home that have whined for peace for three years.Ē

Jason - your GGG Grandpa was a tough cookie!
