A musket will be earned in the

four years of the war in one owner's
hands, and still carries the charge of
powder and ball with which it was
loaded on the battlefield at Peters
burg, just before the close of the
war. The owner is George G. Burlin
game of Cleveland, who enjoys the dis
tinction of not only being one of the
youngest soldiers in the union army,
but also of having been in more des
perate conflicts and more tight places
than fell to the lot of the average sol
dier. Perhaps Mr. Burlingame may
not look so smartly dresed
otherls boys," but at leasta he wil
be the real thing as to uniform. After
his muster out. almost forty-two years
ago, he carefully collected his ac
coutrements and has worn them at
every encampment since the organiza

The hat is tattered and torn,, but it
has been cherished ever since it saved
his life at Hatch's Bun when frag

his chum instantly and mortally wound
ing two other men.
One of Burlingame's most thrilling
experiences was on June 18, 1864, be
fore Petersburg. The heavy artillery
to which he belonged attempted to
take the enemy's works by assault,
but were forced to fall back. Th
fire was so hot that Burlingame
dropped down into a little depression,
not more than a foot deep, where,
with his dead comrades all about him,
he dug a rifle pit with his bayonet
and tin cup. Later in the afternoon
another union regiment' charged the
works and were repulsed, just as Bur
lingame's company had been earlier
in the day. A they retreated, one of

game, and there the two men waited
in the war there were few volunteers
offering, and the drafts had taken near
ly all the remaining able-bodied men.
As a result the government was taking
men who had been exempt from draft
on account of age and who had later
volunteered. Also, the mustering offi
cers weren't so particular as thev had
been in ascertaining the age of the
younger recruits.

to Milwaukee to be mustered in with
the Thirty-ninth Wisconsin infantry.

giant, and when the mustering officer
came upon him again he remarked:
"Looks as if you 'd grown some since I
saw you. Guess you want to go pretty
bad''and passed him.
Judge returned to his original com
pany and was sent to Memphis, where
the regiment was doing guard duty. On
account of his youthful appearance he
was frequently sent out beyond the
picket lines to gather information
in the country, which was swarming
with confederates both in predatory
bands and as individuals home on fur
lough. Tho he wore the army blue, he
was always taken for a non-combatant,
and th hia mission was perilous he
never got into trouble. Thru his work
many raids were made out of the city to
places where confederates were ren
dezvoused and the bands were broken
up or captured.
The only time Mr. Judge was actually
under fire was when Forrest's cavalry
raided Memphis, and there was a sharp
skirmish before he was repulsed.
Thirty-two days after his enlistment
period had expired Judge was mustered
put, Sept. 22, 1864, at Milwaukee, hav

his discharge he received later a for
mal document in the shape of "The
President's Thanks and Certificate of
Honorable Service."
After frying bacon and making cof
fee at Fourth street and Hennepin ave
nue, James Illingham, a veteran from
Wisconsin, erected a makeshift tent on
Elder Stewart's lawn last night and,
rolling up in his old army blanket,
camped undisturbed in the heart of the
city. Policemen investigated the
strange proceedings of the veteran, but
the old soldier exhibited his war med
als, told of nis desire to meet his com
rades, explained the state of his
finances and spent the night with no
protest from the downtown property

he walked from the union depot to
Elder Stewart's property without as

around the elder's lawn, unloosened a
cumbersome-looking bundle from his
shoulders and lay down on the grass.
Passersby who noticed the veteran
and offered him assistance were told
that nothing was wanted for his com

Apparently unconscious of the passer
by, Illingham proceeded to erect his
tent on the coveted lawn. Going to the
curb he struck a match to his bundle
of faggots and soon had several slices
of bacon frying merrily, while a coffee
pot suspended on a two-by-four exhaled
an appetizing odor.
At this juncture Patrolman Gordon
made his appearance and inquired into
the nature of the unusual doings on
the most valuable bit of greensward in
Minneapolis. Illingham was equal, to
