Request to disinter fallen soldier, Augusta, 1864
Contributed by Maine Historical Society
Seward Dill wrote from the Maine State Board of Agriculture in Augusta to Leonard Watson of the Maine Agency Sanitary Commission with a request that S.S. Boardman of Augusta, associate editor of the Maine Farmer, be allowed to to go to the front and disinter the body of a solider to take him north and rebury him.
The Sanitary Commission handled requests from soldiers for assistance with pay, furloughs, receipt of packages and numerous other issues. The agency also acted as the intermediary between families and the general public and the military and military hospitals.
