Obituary

Caledonian, 3 March 1865

Arthur P. Blake, of Co. C, 4th Vt., formerly of Sutton, died at Army Hospital, Baltimore, Dec. 14, of disease contracted in the service. Although but 22 years old, this was the third time he had enlisted in his country's service-having been twice honorably discharged. When his chaplain told him he must die he said he was ready; that it was sweet to die for one's country. His body has been disinterred and brought to Vermont, and funeral services will be held at Peacham, where his father now lives, on next Sabbath, March 5, at 1 p.m.
