Claim Your Ancestor #56: Bugler

Dear students,

While you are waiting for me to post grades, I'm off in the 19th century piecing together as many family trees as I can before the semester ends.

 Many of you want to find out whether your family (if you had family in the US before 1865)  was involved in the Civil War, and if so, which side.  The answer is almost always yes, and most of the times you'll find parts of your family tree on both sides.

Today's Civil War Soldier -- Benjamin F. Pepper
Bugler in the 2nd Battery, Indiana Light Artillery

Have you heard of him?

Do you know what buglers did during the Civil War?

You should investigate*
