Myron Eaton Stowell - Private   
From a eulogy given in First Church of South Deerfield, July 17, 1864:

In the Summer of 1861 Myron Stowell was preparing to enter college in the coming Autumn when the call for 200,000 additional troops went out. He answered the call by going to Greenfield, there to volunteer in the 21st Regiment, Massachusetts, then encamped at Worcester. After serving more than two years he re-enlisted in December, 1863.

Stowell was assigned to assist the surgeon with the care of the sick and injured. During times of battle he was tasked to go out onto the battle field and help carry off the wounded and dying, even during the fiercest fighting. About 5 o'clock in the morning of May 18, 1864, he was at his assigned place of duty near the Spotsylvania Courthouse, when a masked battery opened an enfilading fire on the regiment. Myron was hit by a ball and died. He was buried in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
