Walcott A. Mead
Died at his home in Hartford, Vt., Oct. 5, 1914, Walcott A. Mead of Company D, 14th Vermont Volunteers.
Comrade Mead was a native of Shoreham, Addison county, and enlisted from there in the 2nd or Stannard's Brigade of Vermont Volunteers in the civil war. He was in the battle of Gettysburg and in the notable charge of that Brigade on Pickett's flank on July 3, 1863.
For many years he was a faithful comrade of the Department of Vermont G.A.R., and served the order in many official capacities, and George C. Randall Post, No. 82, of Woodstock, offers this tribute to his memory, looking forward to the time when we shall join him in the grand army of Immortals.
J. O. Wright, for the comrades.
