Waldo Barrows

Two seemingly unrelated soldiers, Waldo E. Barrows, Dorset, a private in Co. A, 2nd Vermont Infantry and Gardner Fayette Griffith, Danby, a private in Co. B, 14th Vermont Infantry, have another link to history, aside from their war service. Barrows, who was killed in action at the battle of the Wilderness, May 5, 1864, was the great uncle of Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. Griffith, a member of the famous 2nd Vermont Brigade that helped repulse Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg, was Bill's maternal grandfather and his substitute father. When Bill was 17, his grandfather took him to Gettysburg for the 50th Anniversary of the battle. See My Name is Bill. This historical tidbit was provided by Ken.
