Death: Jul. 3, 1863

Civil War Union Army Officer. Served as Lieutenant Colonel of the 2nd Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. At the Battle of Gettysburg, on the morning of July 3, 1863, he received an order to lead his men down across Spangler's meadow to drive Confederates from captured Union breastworks at the foot of Culp's Hill. At first he questioned the messanger, "Are you sure that is the order?" "yes." "Well it is murder, but it's the order. Up men, over the works! Forward, double quick!" In the charge a bullet struck Mudge just below the throat and killed him instantly. The 2nd Massachusetts Monument in Spangler's Meadow was the first monument placed on the battlefield. (bio by: EFB III)
