BIOGRAPHY

CHARLES C. COLBURN One of the brave boys that volunteered from the town of Calais on the 29th of August, 1862, and counted on the quota of his native town at the age of 33 in the full bloom of early manhood. Joined Company C, 13th Regiment Vermont Volunteers. He and his twin brother enlisted into this company, but which is the oldest, cannot tell, for was not present when born. I am not sure which is which, if I am writing up Charles C. or Curtis C, but the pictures of them will disclose the true situation. Soldier life was too arduous for Charles and he was taken sick and died January 26, 1863. See page 186.
