Biography

LIEUTENANT CHARLES W. RANDALL.

When the Colonel promoted his son, a stripling of only 16, to the second lieutenancy of Company G there was some quiet grumbling, but the youth made a good officer. When the company with four others was charging to recapture Wier's or Trumbull's battery (am not positive which) on the second day of Gettysburg, he rushed to Lieutenant Clark, in command, and said, "I want to go to the Colonel, he is shot," and he was granted leave. In a moment he returned, almost breathless, saying, "He's all right; it was his horse." He re-entered the service as Second Lieutenant of Company C, 17th Vermont, but contracted small-pox, as he believed from infected underwear which he purchased in Washington, and came so near dying that his health was utterly broken and on the 9th of March, 1863, he was discharged for disability. He opened a country store in East Montpelier, but in the course of a year or two passed away.
