Birth: 1830
Somerset County
Maine, USA
Death: May 31, 1862
Fair Oaks
Fairfax City
Virginia, USA

Mr. Gardiner was 31 when he enlisted on 6/4/1861 at Skowhegan, ME. As the peninsular campaign rumbled along, Union armies, whether they actually posed the threat that Southerners percieved (with McCllelan in charge), is questionable. Still, they were here and the confederate command could not let then take liberties right under their noses. Joe Johnston would attack. The attack came late and uncoordinated. It quickly turned into a hot little action. Sadly though, there was little or no success for either side. The action simply became a bloodletting. Positions changed little. Union losses were approx. 5,013 and for the rebels 6,134. Private Gardiner was among those killed. His body was transported to Seven Pines National Cem. where he lies beside comrades in blue, and butternut.
