William P. Craig

The Vermont Journal, August 22, 1863

Killed in the battle at Frankstown, Md., July 10, William Parker Craig, a member of C. G, 6th Vt. Regiment, son of widow Nancy Craig, of Topsham, aged 17 years and 6 months.

My son has gone! I ne'er can see
Him at our home again. -
A sacrifice to liberty,
He on the field was slaid.

I'll meekly bow and kiss the rod,
And though I often weep,
I'll put my trust in Thee, O God!
That we in Heaven may meet."
