Monroe H. Annis was born March 25, 1835 at Livonia, NY, the son of Augustus B. and Phebe (Skinner) Annis, married March 6, 1872, Jennie Ann (Currier) Slocum at Detroit, MI. Monroe enlisted on August 9, 1862 at Livonia, NY for a three-year term and was mustered into government service on September 25, 1862. He was described as 5' 6", blue eyes, brown hair, with a ruddy complexion. Monroe was promoted to the rank of Corporal on September 1, 1862, reduced to Private on June 27, 1863 and fined $13.00 (reason unknown). On July 1, 1863, Monroe's regiment, commanded by Colonel James Wood Jr., was attached to the 2nd Brigade, 2nd Division, of the 11th Army Corps. During the first day of Battle at Gettysburg, the 136th NY Infantry was ordered "in line of battle by battalions in mass" near the Taneytown Road.
Two days later, on July 3, 1863, Monroe was wounded in action during the Battle of Gettysburg. He was initially sent to Satterlee U.S. Army Hospital at West Philadelphia, PA to recover from his wound and was later transferred to the 57th Company, 2nd Battalion Invalid Corps. He remained with this unit until his discharge on June 13, 1865 at Washington DC. He returned in Michigan and resided at Leslie, Ingham County, MI where he died in 1901.
