Biography

FRANKLIN HOYT gave his age as 45; some said he was older, we young fellows thought he was an old man. He enlisted from pure patriotism and he served his term with Company I and re-enlisted in the 17th Regiment. He was shot through his lung, the bullet passing through him I think in the Wilderness, but he lived and came hack to Montpelier and built houses until about ten years ago when he died.
