Birth: 1842
Death: unknown

Marcus M. Getchell enlisted in the 27th Me. Inf. on 9/30/1862 as a private. He mustered out on 7/17/1863 at
Portland, Me. The men of the 27th Me. were all awarded
Medals of Honor because 312 men extended thier enlistment.
Because of an error even the men who did not extend got
medals. A review board revoked all the medals in 1917 when
it was decided that the action of extending one's service
did not warrant this prestigious award.
