Biography

IRA B. BRADFORD enlisted from Barre and had attended school and worked upon his father's farm. He was always a friend to anyone in need. Was very conscientious regarding his duties as a soldier, but laid his scruples aside when it came to foraging. When General Hooker's army started on the Gettysburg campaign he was detailed building roads and was terribly poisoned with poison oak. His condition was such that he could not march with the regiment. I never saw a soldier feel so badly as he did because he could not join in the fight and he talked about it as long as he lived. He returned to Barre and was a prominent farmer.
