BIOGRAPHY

HORACE L. HILL volunteered from the town of East Montpelier August 29, 1862, and joined Company C, at the age of 21. He was a clean, nice looking and appearing young man with a good character. Evidently well born and brought up. His ambition was satisfied when mustered into the army to fight for the preservation of the Union. He made a good soldier and returned home with an enviable record on the march and in battle. Young men made good soldiers and were as brave and valiant as any. This youthful hero of 1863 is now the old man of three score and ten, but still thankful that he volunteered when his country was assailed and in danger of being overthrown. May my dear Comrade Hill live many years to enjoy this glorious land he faced the belching cannon and the bayonet charge in the valley of Plum Run, Gettysburg, to save. See page 220 for the pictures of one of Company C's valiant heroes in General Pickett's charge July 3rd, 1863. His descendants will ever read with pride the record made and honor won.
