RALPH D. WEBB
Was appointed Second Assistant Surgeon in May, 1865.
He is a very pleasant young man, and liked well by the regiment.
No other changes occurred in the Medical Staff until the muster
out of the regiment.|
CAPTAIN GILBERT D. MUNSON
Was promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel, in January, 1865.
He had long been on staff duty, as Picket Officer. He is an
officer of much ability, good attainments and very pleasing address,
of good morals, and commendable habits. He took command of the
regiment at Goldsboro, N. C., and led it through to Alexandria,
Va., in a manner that impressed the men most favorably. Every
one held him in the highest estimation. He was quiet but earnest
in all he did, and did business orderly and with dispatch.
There was no half manner of discipline; orders had
to be obeyed promptly, and without questions. Colonel Munson,
though young in years, was old in military experience. His coolness
and bravery upon the field of battle, was almost unequaled; he
detested cowardice, meanness and treachery; gentlemanly in his
manner and chaste in his conversation.
CAPTAIN ISRAEL C. ROBINSON
Was promoted to Major at Savannah, Georgia, and commanded
the regiment from that place to Goldsboro, N. C., (see Company
D.) The Major is one of those social, merry, good natured men,
and so musical in everything that no one could avoid liking him,
even if he did not wish to. This was the case with the regiment:
it was natural to be impressed in his favor. On the South Carolina
campaign he commanded the regiment with much satisfaction to all.
He is fond of fast horses, fast people, good water, good
table, and liked to see and have his regiment look well.
REV. T. M. STEVENSON
Was appointed Chaplain in February, 1863, and served
with the regiment in nearly all its campaigns.
The present non-commissioned staff are:
Andrew McPherson, Sergeant-Major.
Simeon C. Search, Quartermaster-Sergeant.
