John E. Darby, M.D was an Assistant Surgeon from June 1862, and a full Surgeon from May 1864 with the Ohio 42nd Infantry and the Ohio 125th with the U.S. Colored Troops.

 

In the spring of 1861 Xenophon Scott enlisted in the three months' service and at the close of his term of enlistment resumed his studies in Jefferson College, but only for one session. He then re-enlisted, and at the second enlistment was in the quartermaster's department. During the arduous campaigning before Pittsburg his health failed and he was obliged to resign.  When the Franco-Prussian war broke out Doctor Scott was put in sole charge of a military hospital, and was the only foreign surgeon thus honored by the German authorities.

 

       Frank Wells, M.D, Obstetrics, Diseases of Children             John Bennitt, M.D., Practice of Medicine   

In September, 1862, while in his junior year at Harvard, Frank Wells enlisted in the Forty-fifth Massachusetts Regiment and served until September, 1863. On his graduation he served on the staff of General Lockwood. 

 

Dr. John Bennitt's extensive history during the Civil War is detailed in the book: "They Died to Make Men Free: A History of the 19th Michigan Infantry in the Civil War".

When the civil war broke out, Dr. Thayer tendered his services, without compensation, to examine the soldiers who entered the Union ranks, and several thousand were so examined by him. No man was more enthusiastic and patriotic than he, his time and money being freely given to the cause of the country. Later in the war he entered the United States Army, serving at the reduction of Forts Sumter, Moultrie, and Wagner, after which he was given charge of the principal hospital for the wounded at Beaufort, South Carolina.
