91st PA: Charles Thompson

Charles Thompson

Note

I have placed several bits of information about a Charles Thompson here, because they do not match the one Charles Thompson in Bates. Whether they belong together is unclear.

Before the war

He was born in 1821/22 (5 (40 in 1862)). He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (5).

When he enlisted, he was a clerk (5).

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 8 inches tall, and had a fair complexion, gray eyes, and light hair (5).

During the war

He enlisted on 15 September 1862 (5). He was enlisted for three years, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Lieutenant Gregory (5). He was mustered in as a private, in company F (6-7).

He went on furlough on 3 April 1863 (2). He returned some time between 12 and 24 April 1863 (3).

On 16 May 1863, General Tyler sent him to Appnia Creek to guard his private baggage (1).

On 8 September 1863, Lieutenant Colonel Sinex reported that he had not returned, and was at Camp Convalescent, Alexandria, Virginia (1). Sinex asked that he be sent to the regiment (1).

On 29 June 1864, the regiment report "Pri Thompson" transferred to the Veterans' reserve corps (4). He was a private, in company F (6-7).
