A signed image of yet another Bangor man, George Varney, who was the third Colonel of the 2nd Maine, all three of whom would attain the rank of Bvt. Brigadier General. He succeeded to command when Roberts stepped down due to ill health on January 10, 1863. Then Lt. Colonel, Varney had led the 2nd at the Battle of Fredericksburg where he received a head wound when struck by a shell fragment.Twice captured by Confederates during his tenure with the 2nd Maine (1st Bull Run then at Gaines Mill ) Varney was an alumni of the infamous Libby Prison in Richmond which oddly enough took its name from another Bangor man, Luther Libby who had removed his family to Richmond in the antebellum period. Acquiring an old tobacco warehouse there, Libby operated a ships chandlery from the old warehouse. Taken over as a Confederate operated prison, the LIBBY sign remained on the building and it was designated as LIBBY PRISON.
