Military service

Before the American Civil War Brastow was the Captain of Company I of the Somerville Light Infantry of the Massachusetts Volunteer Militia.[14] Brastow commanded[14] the company, for the three months at the beginning of the Civil War, that Company I was federalized and reconstituted as Company B of the 5th Regiment. Brastow and his regiment fought at the First Battle of Bull Run.[16]

In 1862 Brastow was commissioned a paymaster[5] with the rank of Major.[14]
