C.H. Withrow shows up here http://books.google.com/books?id=xi0TAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA473&lpg=PA473&dq=Colonel+C.+H.+Withrow&source=web&ots=2zYdXPVozP&sig=tizBUlI67O7p8l_l2SdKYHnj2s4&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=8&ct=result#PPA473,M1 as a second lietenant of Artillery. I did not find him on the Soldiers and Sailors system, though that means nothing. He was probably a Colonel by the end of the war.
