J. Bartlett

Joseph J. Bartlett was born in Binghamton, New York in 1834. He enlisted in the first call for troops and was elected captain of one of the companies organized into the 27th New York Volunteers. He eventually rose to the rank of brigadier general in October, 1862. He is believed to have participated in every battle fought by the Army of the Potomac, except for the campaign of Second Manassas. On the morning of April 12, 1865, Bartlett received the stacked arms of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House. He died in Baltimore on January 14, 1893, and was buried in Arlington.
