Samuel Rudlun's Civil War unit - 56th NY Infantry Mascot - Jack

While marching through Broadway one of the members of Company A picked up a small spotted puppy, which had strayed into the street, and carried it along to Washington, named it Jack, and it remained with the regiment during its entire service, became a special favorite with every member, was in every skirmish and battle, was wounded in the hip at the battle of Fair Oaks, while sitting on the battle line howling, which was the only time he was touched by balls or shot, and survived all the vicissitudes of camp, bivouac and battle field and returned with the regiment and died of old age.
