George W. Richardson

The funeral of Geo. W. Richardson, of the 4th Vermont regiment, who died of typhoid fever at Camp Griffin, Va, Jan. 22 at the age of 23 years, was attended by a large concourse of people from the towns adjacent, at Stamford, on Tuesday of last week. The deceased was a worthy young man, and had, previous to his enlistment, been engaged in studying medicine in the town of Halifax, where he had made a host of friends and acquaintances, who testified their appreciation of his worth by a large attendance upon these last sad rites. The flag under which he enlisted was brought down from Halifax, and served for his funeral pall.
