Frederick H. Fessenden
Another Brattleboro Boy Gone.---Frederick H. Fessenden of this village, was killed in battle near Nashville, Tenn., on the 16th of Dec., and his brother-in-law, Edward F. Wright, was severely wounded in the head. In a letter which has been handed us, from a gentleman in Milwaukee, Wis., connected with the Christian Commission, and who had known young Fessenden and was near by at the time of his death, says "he was a gallant soldier of his country, and what is better a fearless soldier of Jesus. I had got acquainted with him a few days before, and no finer young man did I meet among the thousands of our army." He was struck by a ball in the forehead, and with the exclamation to Mr. Wright, "good bye, " instantly expired. His age was 27 years, 11 months and 10 days.
