BIOGRAPHY

ROYAL S. CHILDS enlisted in Milton, at 19 years of age, and became a member of Company D. Tall, thin and with a boyish face he certainly looked to be about 17, and it is possible that his desire to do his part in the great struggle, induced him to advance his age a couple of years, to be accepted as a soldier for the Union. He was always ready when called, and made no complaint. Served through with the Company, was mustered out at Brattleboro July 21st, '63 and is now living at Clinton, Mass. He cherishes a warm feeling toward his former comrades and frequently attends the annual meetings of the Association.
