War Becord on Army Musket
When Henry F. Bennett, uncle of
George Coon, died in 1900, he left
his nephew a peculiar record of his
service In the Civil war which the
nephew prizes very highly. It is the
trusty old musket that he carried
throughout the time of his enlist
ment, and on the stock of which Is
inscribed the various battles he took
part in and dates of same.
Mr. Bennett was born in Pennsyl
vania and enlisted in the 143rd Penn
Volunteers, being a sergeant in Co.
B. He served throughout the dura
tion of the war and came through
without a scratch, although partici
pating in a number of important
The old time musket was first used
by Mr. Bennett in the battle of
Chancellorvllle, which was fought on
May 1, 2 and 3, 1863. The next bat
tle was that of the Wilderness on
May 5, 6 and 7, 1864 followed in
rapid succession by the stormy bat-
tics or Spottslyvania, May 7 and 8,
186 4, the battle of North Anna River
on May 23 and. the battle of Cold
Harbor on June 2, 1864. Then fol

he participated in his last battle of
the war at Holders River.
In addition to the -musket, Mr.
Coon has a canteen and cartridge bo
which his. uncle carried throughout
the war. He prizes these items very
highly, and especially the musket
with its history of the activities of
his uncle during the war.
