Warren Alger was a 21 year-old Machinist from Worcester, MA, when he enlisted on July 12, 1861 and was mustered that same day into service as a Private. He was reported missing at the battle of Ball's Bluff, VA on October 21, 1861, but returned to his regiment. He was again reported missing in action from July 2 to July 3, 1863 during the battle of Gettysburg, again returning to the 15th Mass. Infantry. Warren re-enlisted for three years service on February 7, 1864 and may have been promoted to Corporal on this date, although the actual date is unknown. He was taken prisoner at Petersburg, VA on June 22, 1864 and died at Andersonville on August 14, 1864 due to Chronic Diarrhea.
