Simeon H. Talbot
Born Brooklyn, New York
23rd New York Independent Battery

…The first battle in which I was engaged was New Berne N.C. Also participated in engagements at Kingston, White Hall, Mt. Olive and Goldsborough …Pollocksville …Trenton and White Oak Run …Fort Anderson …Siege of Washington North Carolina, Blount Creek …Siege and Evacuation of Washington North Carolina.

To me, one of the important events in my service aside from the engagements above write, was an attempt to blow up recruits and getting blown up myself.
