Note N16787 Index
Scribner enlisted in Co. H, 5th New Hampshire Infantry on 14 October 1861. This is the unit that is remembered as having sustained the greatest losses of any Union Army unit in the Civil War. One of those losses was that of Scribner, who was killed in action at the Battle of Sailor's Creek, near Deatonville, Amelia County, Virginia. There is a State Park at the site of that battle.
Scribner enlisted as a Private, was promoted to Full Corporal on 7 March 1863, but, for some reason, was reduced in rank to Full Private one month later, on 16 April 1863. He reenlisted on 1 January 1864, then was wounded in action at Petersburg, Virginia, on 17 June 1864. On 6 April 1865, he was killed.
