His unit went south to Hilton Head, SC, he was captured and confined in Libby Prison, Richmond and at Annapolis, Md, was exchanged and returned to service. He resigned on account of physical disabiity on Dec 31st, 1863. After the war he was Colonel of the 1st Conn national guard on Jan 19, 1869 and served for one year.

Our genealogy said he transferred to the 4th Conn, but upon viewing the National Archives it states he was in the 6th Conn.

Much thanks to Jeff Payne on confirming Benjamin F. Prouty was in the 6th Conn.

Thank you,
