Frank Bancroft, a non-playing manager, was reported to have served as a drummer boy in thewar in the October 26, 1895 issue of Sporting Life. In fact, researcher Rick Stattler discoveredthat Bancroft enlisted as a musician in Company A of the 8th New Hampshire Infantry onSeptember 26, 1861, using the alias of Henry Coulter because he was underage. He waswounded in the line of duty, and later served in the Invalid Corps and the Veteran Reserve Corpsuntil the end of the war. His service is discussed in John M. Stanyan's A History of the EighthRegiment of New Hampshire Volunteers (Concord, N.H.: Ira Evans, 1892), pages 8, 51-52, 362,473-474, 517. Bancroft is listed in the Civil War Pension Index with Company A of the 8th NewHampshire Infantry though he is not in the index of soldiers. In addition, an article in the Wilkes-Barre Times-Leader on May 9, 1918, page 5, stated that he served in the 8th New Hampshire forfour years and two months
