Excerpt from History of the Second Connecticut Volunteer Heavy Artillery: Originally the Nineteenth Connecticut Vols
An effort has been made to procure the portraits of all the deceased officers of the regiment, (fourteen in number) for insertion; but without success. The fou... r contained in the book are considered very correct likenesses, - especially those of Hosford, Berry and Knight.
To mention the names of all to whom the author is indebted for assistance in the collection of materials for this work would swell it beyond its prescribed limits. He can only spare a line to thank them for favors which merit a thousand. He desires, however, to express his great obligations to General C. M. Ingersoll, Adjutant General of Connecticut, and Captain James B. Coit, A. A. G., for various courtesies; and to Chaplain Winthrop H. Phelps, Assistant Surgeon Judson B. Andrews, Lieutenant Homer S. Curtis, Lieu tenant Salmon A. Granger, and Quartermaster Sergeant Henry P. Milford for special acts of kindness appertaining to the work.
