Ledyard and the Civil War

The Ledyard Town Clerk on April 24th of 1866 was Allen Mosher. He was evidently a man who was precise. I find the first page of the Ledyard book of Civil War service has a hand-written notation after the typed words "the preceding pages contain a full and complete record of the names of all Officers and Soldiers" in Mr. Mosher's writing that says "so far as obtainable."
And the book is indeed neatly and fully written.
We will explore the Ledyard book because until 1823, Ledyard was included in the Town of Scipio. Many of these names will be recognizable, including another of my great-grandfathers. Here are the names in the Ledyard book, A - F:
