Cyrus R. Bagley

The Vermont Journal, June 6, 1924

Hartland Memorial Exercises (Excerpt)

"W. R. Sturtevant made a few remarks. He reviewed a few items of interest concerning the Civil war and its brave men, among which he mentioned Cyrus R. Bagley who was the first to enlist from our town. He was only 14 years and eight months of age, and enlisted in August 1862, was a member of Company B, 12th Vermont Regiment, which went from Woodstock. Twenty two Hartland men were in that company. He was wounded April 8, 1865, the day before Lee surrendered. He died in Hartland in 1911. Others who were first to enlist from Hartland when Lincoln gave his call for 300,000 men were William W. Bagley, Roderick Bagley, Fred Blaisdell and Zina Walker.
