Found in "Commemorative Biographical Records:" page 1023
Oliver Dart met with an experience during the war of the Rebellion that few could have survived. He was a member of the 14th C. V. I., and Dec. 14, 1862, when the battle of Fredericksburg was at its height, a shell burst in the midst of Company D, his company, killing a number of men and blinding Mr. Symonds, of Rockville, while a fragment of the shell tore off the lower portion of Mr. Darts face and jaw, and inflicted a severe wound on his arm. For hours he was left on the field of battle, thought to be either dead or fatally wounded. With others he was sent to the hospital at Washington, being met on the way by his older brother, George, who found him neglected and in a terrible condition. From the hospital at Washington he was presently taken to the home of James Dart, where he underwent the first operation, his wound demanded. At the old homestead he passed through the second, and gradually made recovery. George Dart and his wife were almost constantly with their injured brother, and gave him every care and attention. In time he recovered, though the wound was always visible and in later years his mind was somewhat affected, undoubtedly due to the shock and the suffering that ensued from the injury.
