ARMY SERVICE

Mr. Brining had in his possession a document having the government seal which tells his splendid service for his country in the Civil War, from his date of being mustered into service at Camp Butler, Springfield, Ill., on August 23, 1861, as corporal of Capt. Jas. P. Meade's company, to the time of his discharge three years and one month later.

He moved with his regiment to Pilot Knob, Mo. and took part in the battle of Fredericktown, Mo., and with his company was detailed to guard the bridges of the Iron Mountain railroad, then by forced marches, the company went south making 235 miles in six days, including one and a half days spent in crossing the Black and Current rivers then took transports down to the Mississippi and up to Ohio and Tennessee rivers, took part in the siege of Corinth, then joined Buell's army taking part in the famous march to Louisville, Ky., arriving in time to save the city from capture.

Other battles in which he gave service were at Perrysville, Ky., Murfreesboro, Tenn., with Gen. Rosecrans against Bragg, at Pilot Knob and Liberty Gap, where he was wounded in his left hand and ankle. In a severe battle in the Chickamanga valley his eyes became so badly injured that he became totally blind in 1866. He was taken from the battle field with other sick and wounded comrades to the top of Lookout mountain and marched from there to Chattanooga stayed for a feydays in a hospital then joined his regiment remaining there until 1864 when he was detailed in the Brigade commissary department, until the capture of Atlanta, taking part in the engagements at Buzzard Roost, Tunnel Hill, Kenesay Mountain, Peach Tree Creek, Siege of Atlanta, Battle of Jonesboro and a number of minor affairs.
