Biography

LORENZO B. GUPTIL was the opposite of Charlie; he was rather slouchy in his personal appearance, cared very little whether his gun and other accoutrements were in order or not; shirked duty whenever he could, and was a good soldier only when obliged to he. He was not lacking in courage and when brought to a pinch was not found wanting. He survived the war only a few years.
