At the young age of 17, George W F Abraham was mustered into the First Minnesota Infantry on Feb 20, 1864. He was assigned to Company D. He was a farmer from Rosemount, Mn, just south and west of Fort Snelling.
The "Old First" was being mustered out and efforts were being made to reenlist enough of the veterans to allow the units name to be continued on. However, there were not enough men left who were willing to sign up so the new unit got a new name, The First Minnesota Battalion. George was re-mustered into Company B of the First Battalion and served as a musician, probably a drummer.
George was captured on June 22, 1864, at the battle of Petersburg and sent to Andersonville prison. Unfortunately, a couple of months later, on Nov 12, 1864, he died from disease. The cause of death was listed as scorbitus. He never saw his 18th birthday.
