15th Connecticut Infantry Monument
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Civil War Monument. This monument was erected by the State of Connecticut Regimental Association to honor its Union soldiers fallen near New Bern in the Civil War. The 15th Regiment, Connecticut Infantry was organized at New Haven, Connecticut and mustered in August 25, 1862. In the summer and fall of 1864, the infantry faced the most number of causalities of their service in the war. The monument honors the men who died in combat at Kinston in March of 1865, as well as about 70 men who died of disease at New Bern. Although the monument specifically notes yellow fever, the monument and burial of the soldiers in the cemetery also died of other diseases from camps and hospitals. New Bern National Cemetery was established in 1867. Union dead buried at other locations in North Carolina were moved to the National Cemetery following its establishment. The Connecticut Monument at New Bern was the first of four monuments to be sponsored by Union states that sent soldiers to North Carolina during the Civil War. This regiment was mustered out June 27, 1865 and discharged at New Haven July 12, 1865. (bio by: Shock)
