  • Notes 
    • of Warren, Conn.

      In August, 1862, Mr. Sackett enlisted in 19th Conn. Infantry, which subsequently became the 2d Conn. Heavy Artillery. He participated, under Sheridan, in the Shenandoah campaign, and was with the Army of the Potomac in the battles of the Wilderness. At Cold Harbor he was quite severely wounded, but remained in active service, participating in many battles and serving with credit in the final campaign which ended in the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox, receiving his final discharge in July, 1865. - [Weygant, p. 357]

      Letters to his sister Flora Sackett (b.1847). Sackett, an unmarried farmer, enlisted on 6 August 1862 and was mustered-in a Private on 11 September 1862. He was promoted to Corporal on 16 March 1865 and to Sergeant on 25 May 1865. He was discharged on 7 July 1865. This soldier had a refreshing sense of humor, writing on 22 November 1863, "I undertook to write you a letter & smoke at the same time this morning. And as a natural result have the pleasure of copying it.... Write soon I like to read letters much better than to write them." His letter of 1 May 1864 bears an account of a deserter being marched to his execution to the beat of the "Death March," then made to sit on his coffin while he was shot. Noted hundreds of soldiers washing their clothes in the Monocacy River in Maryland. On 3 August 1864 he writes, "We each of us had a little piece of chockolate just enough for one cup, given us by the Sanitary it seemed like a small present but when one looked round & saw the number of pieces there must be he saw it must take a good large pile to go round, & was thankful for small favors."
      Homer was the brother of Augustine Sackett; see previous entry.
