Herbert served in the Civil War. He enlisted at Searsport as a Private in Co. E, 19th Maine Infantry Regiment, on 25 August 1862, and served until 1865 (John Day Smith, THE HISTORY OF THE NINETEENTH REGIMENT OF MAINE VOLUNTEER INFANTRY 1862-1865 [Minneapolis, MN: The Great Western Printing Company, 1909], 333).
The 19th Maine was made up of men from Sagadahoc, Waldo, Knox and Kennebec Counties. They left Maine on 27 August 1862 to serve for three years. Their first time in combat was at Charleston, West Virginia, where the men from Maine behaved "with the coolness which ever afterwards characterized the regiment." The unit was engaged in several battles, including Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Mine Run, Cold Harbor and many more. One of the unit's most severe losses happened at Gettysburg, where they went into action with 440 men and lost, in two days, 12 officers and 220 enlisted men. Herbert was one of the few who survived the entire three years of war, and returned to Maine in June 1865. He applied for an Invalid's Pension 24 February 1893.
In his later years, Herbert operated a dairy farm in Searsport. They had also lived in Swanville. It's interesting that all four of his and Ellen's sons were employed by the same company, the New England Telephone Company.

Wesley was a farmer in Monroe. He committed suicide when he was 70.
