At the breaking out of tlie war, Dr. Straw, altliough 61 years of age and not liable for military duty, closed his office, raised a company of recruits, and went with it to the front. He could not endure the fatigue inci- dent to the long marches that the regiment had to make, and resigned as above. His intense patriotism, however, gave him no rest, and he later applied for an appointment as surgeon; after being mustered out of the Sixth Maine, as noted above, he tendered his services to Dr. Mc- Dougal in charge of the Medical De- partment of New York and was sent to Lansingburg to take charge of a hospital for wounded soldiers, remaining there a year, and was then transferred to a hospital for Confederate soldiers at Elmira, N. Y., where he remained till the close of the war. Died Aug. 4, 1884.
