Note N1965 Index
Miles was a Private in Co. B, 8th Maine Infantry Regiment, enlisting 18 August 1862. He died 7 June 1864 in Washington, DC, from wounds received at Cold Harbor, Virginia. Miles is buried in Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, VA (ROLL OF HONOR, 1 [op. cit.], 169). He served in the same unit as did his brother, Levi, and two of his cousins, William and George.
The 8th Maine Infantry Regiment was organized at Augusta 7 September 1861, to serve three years. That unit had already seen quite a lot of action before the four cousins from Maine (along with 300 other "well drilled and disciplined recruits") joined the regiment in November of 1862, while it was stationed near Savannah, Georgia. From then until the spring of 1864, the regiment mainly performed guard duty at Hilton Head and Beaufort, South Carolina, and at Jacksonville, Florida. Needless to say, the southern climate proved to be the undoing of several of the Maine men (Miles' cousin, George Washington Scribner, was one who received a disability discharge [9 May 1863] while in the South).
In April of 1864, the regiment was transferred to Virginia, and took part in several battles there: Drewry's Bluff, Cold Harbor and Petersburg, to name only a few. It was at the Battle of Cold Harbor that Miles suffered the wounds which eventually took his life. 78 of his comrades died there, also.
Following Miles' death, Eliza married Miles' half 1st cousin, Francis ("Frank") W. Scribner, September 1865 in Patten. They moved to Minnesota, where they lived in Maine Twp., Otter Tail County.
