About Edward Hutchinson Robbins Revere

Dr. Edward Revere: KILLED AT ANTIETAM CDV of Dr. Edward Hutchins Robbins Revere, Assistant Surgeon, 20th Mass. Vols., and grandson of the Revolutionary War Patriot Paul Revere. He was the brother of Col. Paul Joseph Revere who was killed at Gettysburg commanding the 20th Mass during the repulse of Pickett's charge. Dr. Revere graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1849 and served as the Assistant Surgeon for the 20th Mass. He stayed behind with his wounded soldiers during the Battle of Ball's Bluff (Oct. 21, 1861) and was imprisoned in Richmond, being exchanged in Feb. of 1862. He rejoined his regiment and served through the Peninsular Campaigns and Seven Days Battles before Richmond. At Antietam (Sept. 17th, 1862)..."It may be mentioned that, only a few moments before he fell, he was observed by one of the officers of his regiment to be attending to a wounded man upon the ground. Whilst thus occupied, the regiment, which stood within a few feet of him, suddenly changed front, faced to the rear, and fired a volley over his head. he continued his work without a trembling of the hand, and not even looked up." He was shot through the heart, and killed instantly. Another observation was made that, at times, he was acting also as a line officer keeping his men in line during the early action at Antietam. He is buried with his brother at Mount Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, Mass. Photographed by Whipple, Boston, Mass.
