Excerpt from Harvard Volunteers, 1898
One man, a Senior, who enlisted as a private in the very beginning, was given a commission before there had been any fighting and when the fighting began, he was promoted. By a brave regiment he was called a brave man.
There are ... no more battles now. The men are returning and we see them about the college as before, but of course not all who went in the spring; for the work that these men had set out to do would not permit of that. And to those whom we shall not see here, either this year or the next, who fought as their teaching had told them, and did it well, to them full honor is owing, and to them is given in sadness the great love of this University of Harvard. Hollister, Furness, Sanders, Crapo, Adsit, Lahman, Henshaw, Wheeler, Stover, Talcott - they are the men who have gone. They died in service, and when they were buried, United States troops stood at attention.
