The above roster entries detail three men with the last name of Dodge that were enlisted in Company C of the Seventh New Hampshire.  Shedd's letters do not specifically identify the man in question.  The nickname of "Dodge" allows one to assume that the men were close acquantainces and Shedd's wife would know the individual.
