VERMONT SOLDIER HUNG -- The name of Sergt. Dodge, regimental sadler, 1st Vermont Cavalry, is given among those who were hung on the 6th inst. near Berryville, Va., by the order of the rebel Mosby, in alleged retaliation for certain rebels executed some time since near Fort Royal, by Gen. Custer. Sergt. Dodge's time was out, and he was on his way to the front to get some papers he had left there, when he was captured.

Webmaster's Note: An incident actually occurred on November 6th, but no Vermonters were involved. Three Vermonters had been hung by Mosby on October 7th, but they were 5th Vermont privates captured while on picket duty.
Meanwhile, Milo H. Dodge, a native of Tunbridge, and Sadler Sergeant for the 1st Cavalry was discharged in Burlington the day after this article was published. He became a dentist, practiced in Washington for a number of years, and died there in 1892.
