|Death: ||Sep. 17, 1862|
Civil War Union Soldier. George, on September 7, 1861, was an "old" recruit at 39-years old. Nevertheless, he heeded the appeal to enlist and was mustered into Company C of the 51st New York Infantry. His promotion to sergeant is dated September 13, 1862. Surely he felt pleased this day for it was an endorsement of his leadership qualities within the ranks. Unbeknownst to all, he would not live long after this honor. The newly promoted sergeant was killed 4-days later at the battle of Antietam.
