MUSTERED OUT AUG. 19, 1890
GEORGE A. HOWARD OF LONDONDERRY
Mr. Howard was a veteran of the late war, and a member of Sheridan Post of Weston. He first enlisted in the 16th Vt. Vols, and after serving his time out he re-enlisted in the 3d Vt. Battery, and served until the close of the war. He was a good and brave soldier, and died without an enemy; a true friend, always standing by, and ever ready to assist even to his last dollar.
He was but 18 when he enlisted. His father wanted him to stay at home and go to school, but he told him he thought he would make a better soldier than a scholar. His country called him, and he answered. He was loyal clear through, and brave as the bravest. The Post loses a good Comrade, and the town a good citizen. The funeral was more largely attended than any we had for many years.
