COMPANY  B  OFFICERS  at  CRIPPLE  CREEK

Oliver L. Baldwin     ( -)  Mustered in as Capt of Co B on 14 Feb 62; Promoted to Maj on 10 Feb 63

[Capt. Seth W. Tuley was 1 Lt of Co E until he was promoted to Capt of Co B on 24 Jul 63.  Was there NO Capt of Co B from 10 Feb until 24 Jul 63?]

Bell  28  (1835 - )  Mustered in on 5 Jun 61 as Sgt in Co G;  Appointed 1 Sgt of Co G on 17 Jun 61;  Promoted to 2 Lt of Co G on 1 Jul 62;   Captured near Murfreesboro, TN on 13 Jul 62 and sent to Madison, GA and finally to Richmond, VA on 11 Oct 62;  He was paroled on 12 Oct 62 at Aiken's Landing, VA and sent to Camp Chase, OH;  He was described as being 5' 7" with brown hair, gray eyes, and a light complexion;  He was a Machinist by trade;  There is no record of when he rejoined his company, but he was there by Jan 63;  2 Lt of Co G until he was transferred to 1st Lt of Co B on 13 Jan 63 [Note: The AG's report erroneously changes the date to 13 Jun 63 in its remarks.  Was there NO 1st Lt for Co B before 13 Jan 63?]-- alternate dates are given in the Co G records, that he transferred to Co B on 13 or 20 Feb 63;  Resigned on 31 May 63--there is no reason given, but it would seem that charges might have been forthcoming had he not resigned (he comrade, Joseph Bontecou who also transferred from Co G to Co B when Bell did was forced to resign for the "good of the service" due to his alcoholism--could Bell have had a similar problem?)
