Rutland Daily Herald, March 17, 1862:
Tribute to a Faithful Soldier. - Benjamin Stafford of Company A, Fourth Vermont Regiment, died in Hospital at Camp Griffin, on the 2d day of February last. He resided in North Dorset at the time of his enlistment. Capt. Pratt, in a letter of condolence to the afflicted mother of the deceased says: "While you have lost a true and faithful son, I have lost a noble soldier. No man in his company was more beloved by the officers, and no man more cheerful and ready to do his duty. I never had occasion to reprove him. No better soldier ever left the Green Hills of Vermont to fight the battles of his country.
"He has also been noticed, and excused from duty as a mark of merit for the neatness of his person and equipments by the commander of the Regiment."
