Mr. Bradlee was a great-grandson of the Samuel Bradlee who was one of the figures in the Boston Tea Party. He graduated from the Chauncy Hall School at the age of 12, studied law with Rufus Choate, was admitted to the Suffolk bar in 1853 and practiced till the outbreak of the Civil War. He served as recruiting officer, then as an aide on the staff of General Bancroft, and later as first lieutenant and acting captain of the 14th Massachusetts light artillery under Grant, seeing hard service throughout the whole war, being seriously wounded both at Spottsylvania and the Wilderness. After the war, he resumed his practice, and in 1876 retired, moving to Ashburnham, where he was for years a trial justice. Some years later, he moved to Ashby.~Source: His obituary, pub.
