Biography

JAMES CAMPBELL enlisted at Montpelier and was a jolly French boy of 17 years. His witty sayings always amused us. He was a good forager and a true soldier, always ready for duty and a lover of fresh meat, and hogs and cattle often found their way into camp by his influence. He has been a good citizen since the war. Is still living, the same jolly fellow he always was.
