Biography

WILLIAM H. FLETCHER volunteered from the town of Cabot, Vt., September 8th, 1862 at the age ot 24, and joined Company H. Served out his full term of enlistment and was mustered out with his regiment July 21st, 1863. Nothing appearing to the contrary it is assumed that he was a good soldier and did his duty from first to last, and returned home with a clean record and a good reputation while in the service. The author is unable to recall anything in particular as to Comrade Fletcher. The mere fact of promotion from the ranks to corporal shows his capacity and fitness as a soldier and how he was regarded by the company officers. He was a resolute and devoted person, and on the march and in the battle of Gettysburg was alert and did his duty in the great charge against General Pickett as well and heroically as the best. (His picture on page 324 show him to have been cool and brave in battle.)
