Jedediah Chapman

First Lieutenant Jedediah Chapman, because of “protracted sickness” missed the Battle of Chancellorsville in May, 1863 when the 27th Connecticut suffered tremendous casualties, mostly by having their men captured. Only two companies of the regiment remained in the field, along with a few remnants from other companies that were not captured. “These scattering portions were formed into one company, and Lieutenant Chapman was placed in command. His peculiar qualifications of discipline and character contributed much to their unity and effectiveness during the succeeding campaign of Gettysburg; and at their head he fell on the second of July, 1863. His commission as Captain of Company H, dated May thirteenth, 1863, had been already issued and forwarded; but he did not live to know of this well-deserved honor.”
