I not sure where this data comes from as I have misplaced my source book. Its either the History of Kennebec Co., or the History of Machias-- Leveret A. Albee inlisted May1861 as Sergeant in a NY regiment, transfered to regular army by General Order of 7Nov1862. Fought at Chancellorville. Wounded slightly in left leg at Gettysburg 02Jul1863. Wounded in right arm at battle of Spotsylvania May1864, did not leave the field and later the same day was hit by a shell fragment which destroyed the sight of his right eye; was left on the field for dead; picked up two days later by the Confederates and carried to Belle Island at Richmond, VA.; whence he was transfered to Andersonville Prison, GA.; and there exchanged and sent north in Jan1865. The wound at Spotsylvania had affected his brain, and upon reaching the north he was treated for 8 mo. at a hospital for the insane; reported for duty Sep1865, but was returned to the hospital in Nov. and remained there 8 more weeks. He again returned to his regiment and served in Texas until May1866, when he was discharged for inability to perform active service, and then engaged in the lumber and bark business with his father and brothers. He was mentioned for meritorius conduct during the Civil War, was promoted to Colonel and given a command, which his wound prevented him from accepting. He was subject to attacks of "dual existence"(insanity). In 1899 he was appointed Aide-de-camp on the staff of Maj.George M. Lovering, Commander in Chief, Department of Maine Union Veterans. It is said he was working on an Albee genealogy, and resided in Machias where he died 15Apr1915. He is buried in Court St. Cemetery and his stone states he served in Co.B,2nd.batn.,17th.U.S.Inft.
