George Benton Aldrich

by Laura J. LJNuhfer


My g-g-grandfather was George Benton Aldrich who served in Company B. He was from around Delaware, Ohio. He enrolled on 11/11/1861 and was honorably discharged on Oct. 24, 1862 after being wounded sometime at Pittsburgh Landing. He received a shell wound to his left hip/leg and was sent a week later to Camp Dennison. He then enlisted in Co. G 88 Ohio Vol. Infantry 7/11/1863 at Camp Chase Ohio. (P.S. He had a son born in July 1862 that he named Shiloh Landing!)
