BIOGRAPHY

THOMAS CALVERT of Essex, 20 years of age, enlisted at Colchester, and became one of Company D, bright, cheerful and good-hearted, he was the friend of all. Seemingly in perfect health, he was prompt and ready at all times for duty, or for fun. Probably from exposure in the spring of '63 which was a cold and rainy season, he contracted typhoid fever, and though he received the best care possible in the regimental hospital he died June 15th, 1863, at Camp Carusi, near Occoquan, Va. He gave his life at his country's call. His remains were returned to Vermont and now rest in the Cemetery in his native town.
