Civil War Soldier
The soldier's face is turned slightly to the left and bears an expression of thoughtfulness, as if recalling to memory the scenes of the past struggle for Liberty and the Union.

Approximately 1300 Norwich men served during the Civil War, 1216 in the Army and 84 in the Navy. 156 did not return alive. They served in 20 of 28 Connecticut infantry regiments, 2 heavy artillery regiments, 1 light battery, 1 cavalry regiment, and on U.S. naval ships. Several served in other state regiments. They fought in 33 battles and engagements. Many were present at Appomattox, VA, when General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant.

Brigadier General Daniel Tyler of Norwich was selected by Lt. General Winfield Scott, commander of the U.S. Army to lead the northern advance with his division. They met the Confederate Army on July 18, 1861. The first major battle of the Civil War was known as Bull Run by the northerners and Manassas by the southerners. The Confederate Army won the battle.
