Wounded 48 Times In One Battle


One of the most remarkable characters in the United States is an old soldier known to the G. A. R. men of the east as Comrade Chase. Chase served in a Maine battery during the war and carries other scars of nearly 100 wounds, 48 of which were received in the single battle of Gettysburg. During the "period of conflict" he is said to have received more wounds than any other man who fought on either side and lived to tell of his marvelous escapes and exhibit his numerous scars in proof of his wonderful story. — St. Louis Republic.
