Uzal Trowbridge’s Fate, Part II

Lee’s win was a huge psychological blow to the people of the North. They had gone along for months believing things would work themselves out and the war would end, only to discover that the conflict had suddenly deepened… and drastically so. It must have been gut-wrenching to read the list of troops lost and wounded in the press.

Coming as they did in the week before the 4th of July, the North’s losses dampened all celebrations; people became depressed; an end was no longer in sight, and greater sacrifice would be called for.

Published July 23, 1862 in the New York Times:

“THE BATTLES BEFORE RICHMOND; Lists of Wounded in the Different Encounters. NAMES OF THE PRISONERS IN RICHMOND. SECOND MAINE REGIMENT. TWENTY-SECOND MASSACHUSETTS REGIMENT. TWENTY-FIFTH NEW-YORK REGIMENT. SIXTEENTH MICHIGAN REGIMENT. FOURTH MICHIGAN REGIMENT. EIGHTY-THIRD PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEERS. SIXTY-SECOND PENNSYLVANIA REGIMENT. NINTH MASSACHUSETTS VOLUNTEERS. FIRST MICHIGAN REGIMENT. SEVENTH PENNSYLVANIA RESERVE. TWELFTH NEW-YORK. ELEVENTH PENNSYLVANIA RESERVE. THIRD NEW-JERSEY. FOURTH NEW-JERSEY. SIXTY-SEVENTH PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEERS. FIRST NEW-JERSEY. FOURTEENTH NEW-YORK. SECOND MICHIGAN REGIMENT. FORTY-FOURTH NEW-YORK. LIST OF WOUNDED IN HOWE’S HOUSE HOSPITAL. AFTER THE BATTLE OF JUNE 27, 1862. FIRST UNITED STATE CAVALRY SICK OF THE FIRST CONNECTICUT ARTILLERY AT THE HOUSE OF MILES GARTHWAIT. ATTENDANTS. NURSES. LIST OF THE SICK AT MEDOW’S, JULY 3, 1862. NURSES. WOUNDED AND SICK IN HOSPITAL NO. 1, RICHMOND, JULY 10, 1862.

The following are full lists of the wounded left in the Gaine’s Mill Hospital after the battle of June 27, and since sent to Richmond:

Sergt. Wooster — ball through right arm, fractured.

T. Brisnahan — ball through left arm.

Corp. A.J. Tosur — left hand, finger amputated.

Dr. A.D. Palmer, Assistant Surgeon.

Dr. W. Edgerly, Hospital Steward.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
