cally two enlistments, totaling nineteen
months, in that struggle. Mr. Phllpott was
61 years old on April 22 and celebrated his
birthday by joining the Grand Army of tho
republic, of which he had never before
become a member.
When a mere boy of 12 years Phllpott
went to the front as a flfer with Company
I of the Ninety-eighth Ohio. When the
soldiers were being recruited he played the
fife and beat the drum and helped stir up
patriotism. The company took Phllpott
along and dressed him In the army uniform,
although he was too young to be regularly
enlisted. With his boyish appearance and
weighing less than eighty pounds Phllpott
attracted much attention and one day when
the company was In Louisville, Ky., a lady
was heard to remark, "Oh, what a pretty
little solider.' The boy, however, kept up
with tho regiment on all the long marches
and saw many skirmishes.
After threo mopths as a flfer boy Philpott
took ill and was sent home, but In April,
18G4, ho enlisted In Company A, Eightieth
Ohio Infantry, and served for sixteen
month, being on Sherman's march to Che
sea, and in many engagements.
"I don't see how they cs.i find any
younger veterans than I am, for they
wouldn't have been old enough at the time
of the war to get in tho service," said Mr.
Phllpott In speaking of his record.
Mr. Phllpott has lived 1n Nebraska since
1871, and In Tecumaeli since 1884. He had
two brothers In the civil war. One of them
is ttorney J. E. Phllpott of Lincoln, who
was colonel of an Ohio regiment, and the
other was the late Dr. C. H. Phllpott of
Tecumseh, who was a prlvute in the Eigh
Nebraska News Notes.
