BIOGRAPHY

LUCIUS D. NUTE enrolled from the town of Marshfield August 29, 1862 and Joined East Montpelier Company commanded by Captain Lewis L. Coburn. He was an enthusiastic volunteer anxious to go to the seat of war and fight for the preservation of the Union. He was well equipped physically and mentally for the arduous duties of a soldier in active warfare. Had plenty of courage and had fully consecrated his life to the cause of defending old glory before he enlisted. His associates from Marshfield, Berlin, East Montpelier, Worcester and Plainfield was a jolly brave set of men and boys that had volunteered because invited by old Abe as they called him, to come down to Washington and defend his home, the capitol city of the nation and punish those who sought to destroy the mighty republic established by the patriots of 1776. Were happy to go under Colonel Francis V. Randall, who had shown himself a fearless and competent leader and fighter in the first battle of Bull Run. Our Comrade Nute was one of these and he made a fine record and returned home to "Vermont thankful that he had accomplished a little towards satisfying those gallant followers of General Lee that Vermonters were as brave and fearless as any that had ever been born. See page 196 for the pictures of Comrade Nute.
