Twenty-five men of Andover served in the Civil War. Six did not come home. While that is statistically over a quarter of those that served, I am certain that the survivors only focused upon the loss, the grief and mourning.
James Chadwick died August 12, 1863. He was 34 years old.
Julius Rood was with Company G, 13th Infantry, Conn. Vols. He died at age 43 on Ground Hog Day in 1864.
Pvt Albion Baker was a Cavalry rider with Company I, 1st CT Cavalry Regiment. He died on January 2, 1864.
Charles Button was riding with Company A, 1st Ct. V.olunteer Cavalry when he died June 21st, 1864..
I was unable to find or confirm any information about Henry Cheney and Welles Post. Local archives probably hold something.
