Hiland Fuller

Hoosac Valley News and Transcript, June 23, 1864

Death of a Brave Stamford Boy. -

Hiland Fuller, only son of L.P. Fuller of Stamford, of Co. A, 2nd Vt. regiment, who has passed through twelve battles unscarred, was shot by a rebel sharp-shooter, June 5th, while lying in the front line of battles, and supporting the pickets from behind a temporary breastworks, near Cold Harbor, Va., and within about 50 rods of the enemy. Geo. L. Crosier, his boon companion and mate, writes to Mr. Fuller and family that they two were just stepping down into their rifle pits when the ball struck young Fuller in the pit of his stomach, coming out in the small of the back and grazing the backbone. He lived a few hours afterward, having been taken to the hospital. He died very easily and in full faith in his Redeemer. He was a very brave soldier and deeply beloved by his comrades in arms.
