"Mr. Jewett enlisted for the Civil War as 1st Lieutenant of Co. A, 1st Regiment Volunteers (a three month regiment) April 27, 1861, and was mustered out Aug. 15, 1861. He again enlisted Aug. 26, 1862, as Colonel of the 10th Vermont Volunteers and resigned on account of physical disability April 25, 1864. He was stationed most of the time on the upper Potomac and was in the Battle of Orange Grove, Nov. 27, 1863.
