Per William A. Fuller on day of Chase, April 12, 1862: “He wore a mustache and chin whiskers a little too large to be considered a goatee. They were very dark in his younger days. His hair was also very dark. He weighed about 140 pounds and was about 5 feet 9.5 inches high. Yes, this was his appearance in 1862. In the time of our War, he, as the others of us did, wore a gray flannel shirt and dark gray clothers-vest open low down.”
