It is my honor to announce that our small group has finally restored and completely paid for the grave markers for brothers Capt. John Hazlett and Lt Chas. Hazlett. I have already stated their brief history in a previous thread, but I'll quickly refresh my earlier post. John Hazlett was in charge of a group of Ohio Infantry when he was wounded at Stones River and subsequently died of his wound three weeks before his brother, Lt. Charles Hazlett was mortally wounded at Gettysburg while commanding the only battery of guns on the summit of Little Round Top.
Both of these soldiers grave markers were once very elaborate, but fell into disrepair and had become un-readable and broken into pieces. Now that the hard work of replacing them is done, I am asking if there are any Ohio boys or anyone else who would be willing to come to Zanesville, Ohio on May 14th for the day to help us give these soldiers the honorable dedication that they deserve. Along with the dedication ceremony, we are also going to have a living history near the home of the Hazlett's and a very impressive collection of artifacts owned by both of them. To name a couple, a picket manual owned and signed by Charles and his West Point Class of 1861 ring.
If any of you might be interested in helping out with our dedication, I would be most grateful. I feel that this is an honor to be a part of and I hope some of you feel the same.
