Frederick Scriver

Frederick Scriver was born in 1837.

Frederick was 24 years old and possibly living in Big Rapids, Mecosta County, Michigan, when he enlisted in Company B on May 13, 1861. On November 15 Fred was admitted to Kalorama hospital (for “eruptive” diseases such as smallpox) in Washington, DC, and in July of 1862 he was reported as a nurse in Kalorama, but soon returned to the Regiment.

He was killed in action on August 29, 1862, at Second Bull Run, and presumably among the unknown soldiers whose remains were removed from Second Bull Run and reinterred in Arlington National Cemetery.

There seems to be no pension available.
