Alonzo Fogg request for leave, Virginia, 1864

Contributed by Maine Historical Society


Alonzo Fogg of Garland, serving in the 14th regiment of the U.S. Veterans Reserve Corps in Virginia, wrote to the Maine Agency Sanitary Commission in Washington, D.C., in October 1864 seeking a furlough to return home to see his ill father, who he said was not expected to live, and because the election was drawing near and he wanted to vote.

Fogg was 23 when he enlisted as a corporal in Co. D of the 20th Maine Infantry. He was reduced to a private on January 1, 1863 and on July 1, 1863, transferred to the Veteran Reserve Corps.
