Obituary

Captain Alfred K. Nichols, an old Vermont soldier, died at Philadelphia on the 7th of dropsy of the heart.

He was a native of Vermont, and at the outbreak of the war a resident of Burlington. He was one of the first to enlist upon the call for three months volunteers and served as a private in Captain Peck's company of the First Vermont. On the return of that regiment, he was elected and commissioned as First Lieutenant of Company B. Fourth Vermont. He became Captain of his company and served honorably to the close of the war.

Caledonian, August 21, 1884
