When I communicated this order to him, he evidently felt disappointed. He expressed a strong choice to go wherever his regiment went; and when the column to which the Fifteenth Massachusetts was attached was about to pass over the bridge in front of Fredericksburg, he was expostulated with, and reminded of the previous order; but he asked as a special favor to be allowed to go with his regiment, and said that as soon as the fight was done he would return to the hospital and remain there.

    Death of Dr. Haven
    We are deeply pained to observed among the recent losses in the army, the death of Dr. S. Foster Haven, of Worcester, Surgeon of the 15th regiment. While occupied in the discharge of his duties in the hospital at Fredericksburg, and actually engaged in the performance of an operation, a shell struck the building, and burst. One of the pieces struck Dr. Haven and killed him.
    Dr. Haven was a young gentleman of high character and ability. He was the only son of S. F. Haven, esq., the Librarian of the American Antiquarian Society of Worcester. He was a graduate of Harvard College of the year 1852. Since he entered upon his country's service, which he did from the motives of the purest patriotism he had not lost a single day in the discharge of his duties. His early death adds another to the sorrows of the late battle.
  • He was buried on 24 Dec 1862 in Rural Cemetery, at Worcester, Worcester County, Massachusetts.
  • An obituary for Dr. Samuel Foster Haven Jr. was published on 24 Dec 1862 at "The Worcester Spy", Worcester, Worcester County, Massachusetts, as follows:
    For The Worcester Daily Spy - Dr. Samuel Foster Haven
    Intelligence today received, leaves no doubt even in the most reluctant minds, of the sad death of Dr. S. F. Haven, surgeon of the fifteenth Massachusetts volunteers.
    “Brave, but unfortunate regiment” is the exclamation of all. Ever in the most exposed paths of danger, ever brave and faithful, ever unfortunate! Not the least of its misfortunes is the loss of its kind hearted, skillful surgeon, who fell while in the discharge of his duties, surrounded by those whose lives he was endeavoring to prolong and save.
    Dr. Haven was the only child of our highly respected citizen, S. F. Haven Esq., the well known librarian of the Antiquarian society. He graduated at Cambridge in the year 1852 in the same class with major Sidney Willard, who perished in the same battle, and with Capt. Porter of the first Massachusetts battery, Colonel Paul Revere, who was wounded at Ball’s bluff, and several others who have distinguished themselves during this unhappy war. Having carefully fitted himself by assiduous study at the best schools at home, and in Europe, for the practice of his profession, he fixed his residence in Worcester.
    Though tinged with something of pecularity in his manners and habits of mind, he was admirably fitted to obtain eminence in some departments of his profession. His characteristics were throughness and faithfulness. No portion of his labors was slightingly done. That which would be exposed to remark, and that which would not, received an equal share of his of his minute attention. Added to this, he had unwearied patience, quiet persistency and a laudable curiosity about the causes of things. He was gifted, too with no inconsiderable manual and mechanical dexterity and ingenuity. With these qualifications, combined with great attainments in some departments, and a through love of his profession, he might, and his friends for him might well look forward to the time when his position would be an enviable one.
    He was somewhat reserved in his disposition, and did not have so large a circle of acquaintances as many others; but among his intimate friends he was ever warm hearted, devoted in his attachments, and at times almost childishly happy in doing them unexpected favor. His unswerving, indignant honesty, which kept at a distance all shams and pretence, and all persons not of pure and genuine feeling, and his faithful devotion to whatever he once undertook, compelled the highest respect of all.
    When the three years troops were called for, he volunteered his services, and pressed for the position of assistant surgeon in the first regiment that left this county. Since his departure with that regiment he has never been home; but sharing in its misfortunes and hardships, he has without furlough or leave of absence, been constantly with its brave men, unremittingly attending to their wants, in camp and on the battlefield, by day and by night.
    He is cut down in the flower of early manhood before professional honors or social distinctions could be expected to reach him; but length of life could only add to the affection and respect in which his memory will be held. No one’s patriotism could be purer, nor faithfulness greater; and these qualities led him to his noble death. In him he army will mourn the loss of a surgeon of unwonted skill and fidelity; his profession, a member quite certain to attain distinction in some department , and enlarge its boundaries; his intimate acquaintances, a pure minded, simple hearted, devoted friend. In him, too, we all gain a noble example.
    Worcester, Dec. 18.
  • 17 Jun 1863 Doctor Morrill Wyman said of him in an address read at the annual meeting of the Massachusetts Medical Society -
    One, yet in early manhood, an only child, inexpressibly dear to his father, a scholar, learned in his profession, his mind improved by foreign study, responded to the call of the country. Always faithful, chivalrous, dauntless, almost reckless of his life, he believed with Baron Percy his place of duty to be wherever a soldier fell; ready with instant aid for the wounded, he was ever in the thickest of the fight; he fell at his post. What more could we ask? He is held in grateful remembrance by his fellow soldiers who admired his humane bravery, and by his friends who knew the kindly qualities of his heart. What more could we wish?
  • He was buried at Mount Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, apparently. Marvin's history of Worcester in the Rebellion, states that he was buried in Rural Cemetery. It may have been a temporary solution, or he may have been later moved to Mount Auburn when his father died.

    The Late Charles H. Head.
    Charles H. Head, who died in this city Monday, enlisted to the credit of Worcester, July 12, 1861, and was mustered into the services as a member of Co. D, 15th regiment of Massachusetts Volunteers.
    He was with his company and regiment at Balls Bluff, October 21, 1861.
    While many of his comrades were captured and taken to rebel prison, he succeeded in swimming the Potomac river.
    At the battle o Antietam, Md., Sep. 17, 1862, he was wounded, and the regimental roll reports him "missing since Sept. 17, 1862."
    The facts were that in the confusion of the engagement and subsequent events, he was sent north, and transferred from hospital to hospital until he was able to go out on a sick leave or furlough.
    Head then visited friends, where he was cared for, but was physically unable to report in person to the hospital; in this condition he remained until the close of the war.
    He never recovered from his disability, and in a few years he applied to the pension bureau for an invalid pension.
    One of the first obstacles in his pathway was a report that he was a deserter, had never been discharged, and consequently not entitled to pension.
    He then set about to clear up his record.
    With the aid of friends in this city, affidavits covering the whole period, showing conclusively that he was not a deserter, or even absent without leave, were obtained.
    With these and the influence of friends in congress, and after years of patient waiting, an order was issued by the secretary of war granting him an "honorable discharge," which he subsequently received, also a pension.
    During the past two years he has been a constant sufferer and unable to be about the home but little, and for a long time has required the almost constant aid of an attendant.
    He was 44 years and 4 months old....He was a member of the 15th Regiment Association. Although not a member of the Grand Army, he has been kindly remembered by Post 10 of this city.
    He leaves a wife and theee children, who have the best wishes of all in this hour of their trial.
