Killed in the battle of Black Forest (Spotsylvania), May 12th, Frederick Marshall, a member of Co. H., 2nd Vt. Regt, aged 26 years.
Mr. Marshall enlisted in May,1861, in his country's cause, and faithfully did every duty; never being absent from his regiment until the 1st of January, 1864., when he re-enlisted and came home to Waterville, to gladden the hearts of his friends once more with his presence.. he spent a short and happy time with his friends at home.The 1st of February he again bid adieu to those dear friends, never to meet again in this world, and returned to his regiment where he was faithful to every duty until he fell a martyr to his country. He was shot through the head, and died without a groan.. He was a noble soldier, and will be sadly missed by his company.; he was always cautious, but brave-- so said his comrades in a letter to his wife. But with others he has fallen--alas, to rise no more in this world below.
