Vermont Journal, July 17, 1914
General Rush C. Hawkins of the famous New York Zouaves in the Civil war honored Windsor with his presence on Saturday of last week. He is a native of Pomfret and a grandson of the Rev. Elisha Hutchinson, who preached the sermon in the old meeting house in Windsor, July 2, 1777 at the opening of the convention that adopted the constitution of Vermont. While here he visited the plant of the Windsor Machine company, the state prison and the Old Constitution House. He returned by way of Brownsville to the Woodstock Inn where he is spending the summer.
