Obituary

The Vermont Journal, October 29, 1864

Killed in the battle of Opequan, near Winchester, Va., Sept. 19th, Aaron P. Knight of Co. H. 10th reg't Vt. vols., and youngest son of Mrs. Melinda Warren of Weathersfield, aged 21 years. A most affectionate son and brother, and a beloved member of the Church. None knew him but to love. He was anxiois to do what he could to sustain the Government in its hour of peril, and all the pleasures of home, the society of friends, and the entreaties of loved ones could not keep him back. He felt it his duty to give his services tand hi life if necessary for his country. He has fallen - fallen in the discharge of that duty the performance of which was dearer to him than life itself. Another name is added to the long list of those noble ones, whose loss reveals to us more clearly the worth of the principles they died to sustain.
