Obituary

Losses in the Third Vermont.

In his official report to Gen. Washburn, Col. Seaver says in regard to the part the 3d took in the Fredericksburg battles:

During the action both officers and men behaved well, all cheerfully did their duty. I feel that I should be doing injustice did I fail to make mention of the gallant service of Lieut. Col. Pingree and Major Nelson during the engagement. I append a list of the killed and wounded:

KILLED

Corp. John F. Crosson, co. C, Sherbrooke, C E
