There is also a letter written by a Doctor in VT. stating the physical condition of John W. Barrows, Priv. in Co G 5th Vt. Regt Vol's is suffering a lot of pain due to having scurvey and his disability is ongoing.

No where in his military papers does it state "where" he was actually held.
There is one note on the 1862 Memorandum but not sure what it is or how to get it.
Where the line starts out, " Admitted to Hospital at .... there is a written note by "who?" "See Archives files # 25 - 967-C-84" ??????

Well, that's all I know that's positive, but what I don't know is probably more so, so anyone who can help
