Charles Hatch Long, born In Claremont, March 14, 1834, died in that town May 30, 1908.
He was a son of Capt. Charles F. Long, and was graduated from Norwich University in 1855. He served as a drill master for the state for some months at the opening of the Civil War, but opened a recruiting office later, enlisting men for the famous "Fighting Fifth" regiment, in which he went out as a captain. He was severely wounded at the battle of Antietam. Later he was made lieutenant-colonel of the 17th. Afterward the men of that were transferred to another regiment. Subsequently, in September, 1864, he became colonel of the heavy artillery, serving on the defence of Washington, but in November following was assigned to the command of a brigade, in the Twenty-Second army corps, which he held till the close of the war.

Returning to Claremont, Colonel Long held the position of railway station agent from 1872 till 1901. He was a Republican in politics and had served as representative several times, and as county treasurer. He had been commander of Col. Jarvis Post, G. A. R., and eminent commander of Sullivan Commandery, K. T., and was a member of the finance committee of Episcopal diocese of New Hampshire.
