History of Hamilton County says he was injured in the Battle of the Wilderness by a piece of timber falling across his spine, causing paralysis and that he received the largest pension paid to private soldiers.

History of Fulton County, by Washington Frothingham, 1892:
Bates, Charles A., a farmer of Northampton, was born in Preovidence, Saratoga county, March 20, 1836, was a soldier in the civil war in Company D, Ninety-third New York Volunteer Infantry, enlisting in 1863 and remaining until the close of the war. He participated in the battles of the Wilderness, and at that time was injured by being struck by a piece of timber falling across his spine. This caused paralysis, and he has been helpless ever since. He receives the largest pension paid to private soldiers. October 3, 1866, he married Julia Fitzgerald, of Pottsville, Pa. She was born May 15, 1845, and they have three children: Seward A., born February 14, 1868; Nelson E., born July 9, 1871; and Georgia A., born October 1, 1873.

From the Geneva Courier, 24 April 1861
"The following are the officers elected by the company of Volunteers in this village: ...4th Corporal - D.W. Ellsworth... 60 names are now upon the roll. The company paraded yesterday morning, and were inspected by Major Bean. The company is still receiving recruits, while awaiting orders to march."
From the Geneva Gazette, 8 May 1863
"Casualties in the 33rd in the late Battle at Fredericksburgh [sic]. A letter from a member of the 33d received by a citizen states that this regiment, whose term of active duty expired the 30th ult., volunteered in a body for the fight then impending. Such conduct and heroism are deserving of lasting and honorable remembrance. But alas! It was a fatal resolve for many a brave boy of that regiment, as the sequel shows. If we are correctly posted, the 33d is in Sedwick's Division, Mills' Brigade. These were the troops who so gallantly stormed and took the heights of Fredericksburgh [sic] on Sunday last, capturing the famous Washington Battery of New Orleans. The reported Union loss in this assault is one thousand killed and wounded."
From the Geneva Gazette, 15 May 1863
"Tuesday, May 12, 1863, We received the following letter from Maj. Platner Tuesday morning: HEADQUARTERS 33d Reg't N.Y.V., Camp near Banks' Ford, VA, May 5th. S.H. Parker: For the information of the friends of the members of Company H, 33d Reg't N.Y.V., I herewith hand you a correct list of killed, wounded and missing at the battle of Fredericksburgh [sic] the 3d and 4th inst.: Wounded...Private D.W. Ellsworth, hand.... Our regiment lost in killed, wounded and missing 240, including commissioned officers-over one-half of our effective strength at the time of going into action. I have no time to give you the details at present. In haste, your &c., J.S. Platner. Maj. 33d Reg't N.Y.V."
