Among those present at the Reunion was Edw. D. Cohota, of Santa Fe, N.M. This comrade, a native of China, was a member of Co I, 23d regiment, and afterwards was several years in the Regular Army. He came to Gloucester when quite young, and enlisted from there at the age of 18 years. Were there any other natives of China in the Union army as privates?
