From "A German Family ..."

"In the meanwhile, the Civil War had begun. He [George] and his younger brother John, who was only eighteen, enlisted in the cavalry. I have a copy of his Volunteer Enlistment paper, which records his having volunteered 'the twenty-ninth day of August, 1864, to serve ... for the period of one year.' He was assigned to the 9th District Pennsylvania Co. 'H' 11th Penna. Cavalry. ...

On February 15, 1901, my Grandfather presented to his wife, Maria, and his children, a large framed copy of his Discharge, which reports that 'Comrade Spotts shared the fortunes of his regiment in the following engagements: Fort Harrison, September 29, 1864, New Market Heights, December 10, 1864, Five Forks, April 1, 1865, Amelia Court House, April 4, 1865, and Appomatox at Lee's surrender.' ..."
