    Henry S. Wells of Quincy was one
    of the fourteen men who enlisted
    July 9, 1861, three of whom were
    killed, while he was taken a priso-
    ner of war at Bull Run July 21st,
    and held until June 3rd, 1862, when
    he was released on parole of honor
    until regularly exchanged. He was
    a member of the Fourth Michigan
    Infantry, of the brigade that re-
    ceived the arms of Lee's army. He
    was at the battle of Fredericksburg,
    second Fredericksburg and Salem
    Heights (Chancelorsville), Spott-
    Sylvania, North Anna (where he was
    wounded), Cold Harbor, the assault
    and siege of Petersburg, Weldon
    railroad (a three day battle) and
    at Peeble's Farm, where he was
    wounded and permanently disabled.
    He was in the service eleven hun-
    dred and seventy-nine days, include-
    ing 135 days in line of battle and
    317 days in prison. Of his career
    as a citizen, the people of Quincy
    are so well acquainted that details
    here are unnecessary. He has hon-
    orably filled every position which
    he has occupied and been loyal to
    every cause which he has served.
    Soldiers and citizens of this city will
    be pleased if the Grand Army men
    shall see fit to make him their de-
    partment commander.
