Was Old Tent Mate of St. Albans Man
Byron D. Matthews, who died in Morrisville last week, was one of five tent mates of Co. F, 13th Regt., Vt. Vols., that went into camp on Capitol hill at Washington, D.C., the fall of 1862 in an A tent they drew from the commissary that day. One of these was Alonzo H. Sherman, of St. Albans. When they went into camp Matthews always was sent to the wagon train to look for the old tent, and was sure to find it so they camped in the same tent the last night the regiment used A tents, when an order came to use shelter tents to march from Ocquam, Va., to Gettysburg. All lived to come back home and all were living up to the date of Matthew's death. Every one was born and reared under the shadow of old Mount Mansfield, and all can be set down as Green Mountain Boys. They are as follows: Julius Bliss, Caleb P. Nash, Byron D. Matthews, Morris D. Mead and Alonzo H. Sherman.
