From the Book 'History of Pittsfield, N. H. in the Rebellion' by H. L. Robinson, published 1893
"Solon G. Blaisdell was a harness-maker by trade,and had a shop, first on Water street and afterwards on Main street. He was born in Danville, VT, February 11, 1834. His parents were Greenleaf L. and Emeline (Babbit) Blaisdell. He married, December 17, 1859, Miss Annie G. Clarke. He enlisted first in Company G, Eighth New Hampshire volunteers, but owing to some misunderstanding he was not mustered into service. In August, 1862, he entered Company F, Twelfth New Hampshire volunteers, was made a sergeant, afterwards promoted to first sergeant, and then to brevet lieutenant. He participated in the battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Wapping Heights, Swift Creek, Drury's Bluff, Port Walthall, Cold Harbor, Bermuda Front. At Petersburg for seventy-two days he was under fire, and at the capture of Richmond was one of the first men to enter the city. At Cold Harbor, he was wounded quite severely in the left arm and side, and also in the foot. The captain of his company said that he was one of the most reliable soldiers in the regiment, and deserved promotion long before he received it."
