Ancestor Info
Name: Benjamin Franklin ProutyRank: Captain Company: B

Bejamin Prouty started off in the 1st Conn and fought at 1st Bull Run. On Sep 12, 1861 he was commissioned a captain in the 6th Conn. 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, Shawn
