BOWMAN, EDWARD R.
Rank and Organization: Quartermaster, U.S. Navy. Born: 1828, Eastport,
Maine. Accredited to: Maine. G.O. No.: 59, 22 June 1865.
On board the U.S.S. Ticonderoga during attacks on Fort Fisher 13 to 15 January 1865.
Despite severe wounds sustained during the action Bowman displayed outstanding courage in
the performance of duty as his ship maintained its well-placed fire upon the batteries on
shore, and thereafter, as she materially lessened the power of guns on the mound which had
been turned upon our assaulting columns. During this battle the flag was planted on one of
the strongest fortifications possessed by the rebels.
