The 7th Regiment, Connecticut Infantry was organized at New Haven, Connecticut, and mustered in Sept. 13, 1861. This regiment was mustered out July 20, 1865, and discharged at New Haven, Aug. 11, 1865. My g-g-grandfather, Josiah Barnum Corban (1821-1894), was active in the 2nd CT Artillery, Co. G, from Jan-Nov, 1864. I have previously posted a photo of a pewter plate Josiah carried in his pack during the Civil War. I also have copies of letters he wrote home to his family while he was away, obtained from the historical society in Hartford, CT. I feel a strong connection with that side of my family at these events.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.
