Two other Quakers served in the 4th Vermont, Cyrus Pringle, of Charlotte, and Lindley M. Macomber of Grand Isle. Macomber and Pringle were also drafted, and enlisted and were discharged on the same dates as Dakin. Pringle's diary has been published, and he mentions Macomber and Dakin in it, including a letter he and Macomber co-wrote to Governor Holbrook to intercede on their behalf. Given the coincidence of the dates and their letter, we can assume Peter's experience in the service closely matched Pringle's.
