At 21 years of age enlisted in August, '62 at Milton. He was an exceedingly lively young mand and even at this writing, travels at a rapid pace. If there was any frolic in the regiment or any foraging outside, Sanders was one of the foremost. He did his full duty though with much grumbling in hard times. Much inclined to argument, he was always in a wrangle, and added variety, at times, when otherwise it might have been monotonous. Serving out his full term, he re-enlisted in a battery and was severely wounded. After the war he located in Milton, later moving to New York, and is now a prosperous farmer in Vermont.
