  • Notes 
    • of Providence, R. I.

      When on April 12, 1861, the long threatened war of the rebellion was inaugurated by the bombardment of Fort Sumter, Frederick M. Sackett was a student in senior class of Brown University. On seeing a printed copy of President Lincoln's first call for troops he deliberately lay aside his books, enlisted as a private soldier in the 1st Rhode Island Regiment, commanded by Colonel (afterward Major General) Burnside, and was soon hastening with that thoroughly equipped body of patriots to the defense of the National Capitol. The first actual trial of his mettle as a soldier was on the Bull Run battlefield. He acquitted himself with credit on that occasion, and when on August 2d, 1861, his regiment was mustered out of the service he was immediately authorized by the Governor of his state to assist in recruiting several light batteries, then being raised for immediate service at the front. On Oct. 5, 1861, he was commissioned First Lieut. in First Regiment R. I. Light Artillery and assigned to duty with Battery "C." He participated with that famous battery on the fields of Yorktown, Hanover Court House, Mechanicsville, Gaines Mills, Malvern Hill, Antietam, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, and was a portion of the time in comhand of his battery. The following extract is from the official report of Capt. Richard Waterman, senior officer of the battery at the disastrous battle of Chancellorsville: "May 3d, still in position. Two pieces under command of Lieutenant Sackett took up position in a lot on the right of the road leading to Chancellorsville. Sergt. Aug. S. Hanna and Private Frederick S. Mayes killed in action, and Privates Chas. Jenkins and Patrick J. May severely and Corp. Chas. McCarty slightly wounded--all belonging to section under command of Lieutenant Sackett. May 4th, Lieutenant Sackett's section fired 5 rounds at the enemy who were advancing in the woods in a solid column. Lieutenant Sackett was severely wounded in the wrist by a minie ball."

      On October 6, 1863, Lieutenant Sackett resigned from the army and engaged in the woolen goods (commission) business in New York City. A year later he returned to Providence, R. I., and there built a mill and was engaged in manufacture of woolen goods until 1882, when he took up the manufacture of sulphite wood pulp and paper, in which he continued until 1890. In 1895 he was appointed Adjutant General of the State, which office he still held in 1907. [Weygant, p. 330-331]
