Honor To the Brave
The remains of Capt. George Quimby, Co. D, 4th Vt. Vols., was brought up on the cars Monday night to his home in Lyndon. Capt. Quimby was killed in the recent fight before Fredericksburg. He was acting major at the time and bravely led his men forward when a ball struck him in the neck cutting off the jugular vein and killing him instantly. Capt. Quimby was a young man of fine natural abilities - a graduate of Dartmouth college, a gallant officer, a true soldier and gentleman. A large circle of friends will mourn his loss, but as they recall his upright life, they will be cheered by the thought that he has now been promoted to be one of the "household of God."
