Biography

M. FRANKLIN ATKINS enlisted from Duxbury in which town he was born. He had seen previous service in the 2nd Vermont, Company D, from which he was discharged for disability, but having recovered his health in a measure, he was very anxious to try it again. Soon after reaching the front he was detailed as teamster, but his health failed him again and January 6th, 1863, he was sent to the general hospital where he was discharged for dis- ability January 15th, and died only a few months later.
