Non-Commissioned Officers of the 13th Maine Infantry Regiment
The men of the 13th Maine included about 49 who enlisted as sergeants and 69 who enlisted as corporals. Also, the wagoners were paid at the Corporal level even though they were not line non-coms. As time passed many of these men left due to disabilities, casualties and promotions. Their positions were filled through the promotion of privates or subordinates.
Many of the enlisted men were promoted to higher non-commissioned or commissioned officers, including: 136 of the privates, 2 musicians, 32 corporals, and 27 sergeants.
Over 90% of the men have been identified on one of more census reports. Many people have sent me genealogical data, pictures, letter transcripts, etc. Information on the type and amount of information I have is found in the page about biographical and genealogical information which indicates the number of relatives identified, sources, pensions, demographics, etc. A sampling of the non-coms for whom we have considerable biographical information, photos and copies of documents include:
