George A. Boardman wrote to "My Dear Mr. Smith" at the Maine Agency Sanitary Commission in Washington seeking information for a neighbor, a widow, about her only son. She saw a report in the Boston Journal that he was in a hospital and wanted to know his condition.
Boardman discussed personal issues also in his letter to Smith, with whom he was acquainted.
James Hanninger of Belfast enlisted as a sergeant in Co. C of the Maine 1st Heavy Artillery Regiment in September 1863. He was mustered out on September 1, 1866.
