Gleaned from a country sale some years ago when they came out of attic trunk storage carefully tied together just as they remain today, we were impressed enough with the prophetic inscription penned on the back of Little Freddy’s image to keep the pair together as they had been for decades. Faded with age but still clearly legible is ’My Darling little Freddy - From his Father in camp at Poolsvill -Sargent 10th Mass Battery - In the great Rebellion of 1862 and 1863 to his Mother - Croline Gwell’ on the back of this image of Little Frederick. Set aside years ago as a some-day research project the little group just came out of our own storage accumulation. Now with the benefit of the internet and some helpful data base access, we were able to take advantage of what fragments the inscription provided to complete the story with only a few key strokes. Asa L. Gowell, the only Gowell in the 10th Mass. Battery, was a 27 year old Boston teamster when, in the summer of 1862, he mustered in as a member of the 10th Massachusetts Light Artillery Assigned to the defenses of Washington in the fall of 1862, the 10th Battery with its six 3 inch Rodman guns, started for Poolesviille, Md. and winter camp the day after Christmas.
Gowell remained with his unit throughout the Civil War mustering out with the Battery back in Boston on June 9, 1865. During his tenure with the 10th the hard fought battery saw action at such as Mine Run. Brandy Station, Battles of the Wilderness, Deep Bottom, Ream’s Station Hatcher’s Run, Petersburg, Sailor’s Creek, Appomattox C. H. and many more. Born in Litchfield, Maine, Asa and Caroline were married in 1858. When he went off to war Little Freddy (Fredrick Meriam Gowell )was their second of two children. At the time of his passing in 1902 Asa Gowell had been an active member of G.A.R. Post # 200 in Jamaica Plain, Mass. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !
