The following testimony to his merits was given by Colonel William Dwight, Jr., his regimental commander:— Lieutenant Stevens was dear to me. I recognized him as one of the very best officers of
s in Massachusetts regiments. No attempt has been made to obtain the middle names of officers, as this would have required a great expenditure of time and labor.
