Howe of Com pany JI. loth Vermont regiment, iur in; the Civil war. He was in the hos pital at Fairfax Seminary on account of illness in the early j.art of his ser ite, afterward was in charge of the liakery which fnrniplied the hospital thousands of loaves of bread a lay, subsequently was an ambulance driver in the Shenandoah valley, in which he was made a target, participated in im portant battles, was in a double quick charge in front of Petersburg, in which his haversack was shot away, captured a rebel Hag for which anoth er man received a medal of honor, and, armed only with a spade, took a reb el prisoner and turned him over to headquarters. Mr. Howe, who is now a resident of Walpole, N. II., is a member of Sedgwick post, No. 8, G. A. H., of Rrattleboro and formerly lived in this town. Jonathan Clinton Howe was born in Springfield (Vt.) April 15, is;8, a son of Isaac and Eliza Tarbell Howe. He obtained a common school educatiou and attended Springfield semiuary a short time, living on a farm until he was 22.

Selling the bakery by auction, he reported at Brattleboro and was mustered into service here. He left for Washington Sept. 1, stayed one night on the cnpitol grounds and then marched across the long bridge to Ar lington Heights, where the regiment camped a week or more.

Then they march-ed-after-Lee and were in all the cam paigns from there until on or about the- middle of September when they arrived at Culpepper, V'a. From there Mr. Howe was sent to the hospital and on becoming able was detailed in hartre of the bakerv. .remaining there nearly nine months. During the bat tle of the Wilderness the bakery turn ed out as high as 3,000 loaves of bread n dav to suuplv the wounded who were brought to the Fairfax Seminary hospital. After joining the regiment at liar per's Ferry Mr. Howe was appointed ambulance driver, in which capacity he served through the battles of Win chester, Cedar Creek, Fisher's Hill and up through the valley to tStrasburg During the battle of Cedar Creek, af ler leneral Wright or the sixth corps had formed the line alter the retreat, Mr. Howe was with the ambulance train in the rear of the army and with others was sent between the two lines after a colonel who was badly wounded. When they had placed him in the ambulance a six-pound rebel battery opened on them. They started for their line, which began returning the tire, and soon were between two armies which were firing at each other, but Mr. Jlowe went through without a scratch. At Cedar Creek he saw Gen eral Sheridan when the latter arrived at the scene of action on a coal black charger. Mr. Howe remained in the Shenan doah vallev until rebruarv, staving through the winter with the ambu lance, with the artillerv brigade, lie eached Washington on Washington iirrtniay, turner the ambulance over to the government and reported to his regiment at Citv Point. On March 23 Grant ordered a reconnoisant-e to keei the rebels back. Troops were sent down to Five Forks, where Sheridan was stationed, and a charge of picket line against picket line was ordered. Mr. Howe was a picket and after the first charge it was found that everv fourth man in his company was dead Late that afternoon another charge was maiie ana tne reiei works were taken without his company losing a man. That evening Mr. Howe was sent out to ng a vniette hole, leaving ms gun sticking in the breastworks It was then that he ran on to a rebel picket with a gun, but the rebel was so scared that he obeyed the command to "About face, forward march, trail your gun," although Mr. Howe had only a spade. Mr. Howe was in the front line of the battle in front of Petersburg. "In i ii -I ... uouoie quicK rime,-- ne says, "we struck the rebel picket line and the whole line surrendered, stopped, but left them behind us. We charged and to the left and when rebel line thev thought w e never for the line double quick we struck the we were their picket coming in and fired overhead lhey had a bridge laid over the ditch so that we could walk right on to the breastworks.' I was next to the col ors, and in crowding on the bridge the colors were crowded into the ditch and I with them, and I, with my bayonet stuck into the ground, assisted the coior guara to place what l think was the first colors on the main works in front of Petersburg that morning. " Then followed the use of bayonets lubbing with muskets and the rebels were driven from the fort. Mr. How captured a rebel flag, but on being ordered to help form a skirmish line to locate the rebels he had to throw the flag down. A few days later the division was called up in line and 14 men who had captured rebel flags were presented medals of honor from Wash ington, a oO-days' furlough and free transportation to any place in tjie United States. One of the 14 was a Xew York man who had picked up the flag that Mr. Howe had thrown down. The skirmish line was formed and a i-harge made, but the Johnnies nearly surrounded the line and a retreat was necessary. During the charge Mr. LOONS - Howe's haversack was shot away and he lost all his rations and his diary in which he had kept a record of the war since his enlistment. They laid on their arms that night in front of Petersburg, and during the night Petersburg and Richmond were evacu ated. Mr. Howe was with the men who followed General Lee four or five lays. and charged across Sailors' Run, when the rebels surrendered and Gen eral El well and 10,000 others were made prisoners, mostly marines from the gunboats around Richmond. Very soon afterwards Lee Surrender ed, and alter a lew more marches Mr Howe with others participated in th grand review, through Washington, and was discharged at Arlington Heights. Mr. Howe received his discharge July 4, 1SG5. Then he returned home and remained until August, when he went to Ohio and - married Miss Leonora Wright of Selnian, whom he had met in Washington. lhey returned to Springfield (Vt.) and remained there until 1870. In July, 1870, they came to Brattle- boro and Mr. Howe was enirdoved hv the Estey Organ Co. about 23 years. Then he bought a job shop, and 16 years ago moved to Walpole, where he has Jived ever since.
