    • During 1864, Feeler was with his company, which was stationed first in South Carolina, then in Virginia. From December 1864 to January 1865 he was absent, on detached duty with an ambulance corps. He rejoined his unit the following March, at which time his company was encamped at Chapin Farm in Virginia. By April, Company I had joined the Army of the Potomac near Petersburg, where (according to War Department records) 'it shared in the most memorable campaign which resulted in the fall of Richmond and the surrender of General Lee'

      Feeler became ill in June 1865, and, from then through September, his status was given as 'sick at New Orleans, La.' The 29th had been sent to Texas, and Feeler perhaps became ill on the trip south and never reached Texas. He was discharged from the army on October 23, 1865. [1]
