William H. Crowell

Lamoille Newsdealer: November 9, 1864

The following letter relative to the death of Wm. H. Crowell, of this town, who was killed in the battle near Winchester on the 19th of September, pays a high tribute to him, and it is doubtless merited.

NEAR HARRISBURG, VIRGINIA,
September 20th, 1864

MRS. CROWELL: --- It is with much regret that I inform you of the sad news of the death of your brave and noble son. I presume you have heard before this time of the battle near Winchester, which gave our Army the greatest victory of the war. Twas there your noble son received his mortal wound.

We mourn with you the great loss of one of our oldest, and best soldiers. He has been one of our companions so long, we miss him as a brother. He was ever true and faithful to his duty, winning the respect of his commanding officers and all who became acquainted with him.

I have not time to write all particulars, but will do so some other time.

I am very truly your obt. Servt.

1st Sergt. Chas. B. Guyer
Co. E. Vermont 3d Vols.

Lines on the death of Wm. H. Crowell, who was killed in battle Sept. 17th

Behold how grim death has grown
In every state, and every town.
Many who in the world we know
Has passed death's cold valley through.
They've gone from us-their souls have fled,
And their names are numbered with the dead.

Wm. Crowell is one that is gone,
By the hand of death to join the throng,
Enlisted in his country's cause
To help support the wholesome laws.
He left his home, and friends behind,
A soldiers grave for him to find.

T'was on the dreadful battle-ground,
Where shell and cannon loud did sound;
That he honorably met his fate.
Doing honor to his town and state.
