Obituary

John Tyler Bass, son of the late Alpheus Bass of Moretown, died in Marion, Ind., June 3, aged fifty-four. He enlisted in Co D, Second Vermont, and served through the war. He was promoted to the captaincy of his company, and later transferred as captain to Company H. In one of the fiercest battles he became regimental commander, every mounted officer being killed or wounded. He fought as bravely as the bravest.
