BIOGRAPHY

JOSEPH DOUGLASS enlisted at 19 years of age in Milton, and became a member of Company D, 13th Regiment Vermont Volunteers. Strong and hearty, always ready and willing, he was one of the best soldiers in the company. That he could milk a Virginia cow, and in the night, would indicate that he possessed other, and persuasive power, as well as strength. He was always on hand at roll call, marched with the regiment to Pennsylvania, went through the battle of Gettysburg without a scratch, returned to Vermont and was mustered out with his comrades July 21st, 1863. Since the war he has lived in Milton and is now a prosperous farmer there.
