Biography

HENRY A. DOW was a farm laborer and enlisted at Barre, when nineteen years old. His comrades remember his peculiar ways and how he used to threaten to scratch our eyes out. He was second to none in the performance of his duties and was a good soldier. He has never attended any of the soldier reunions or communicated with his comrades, and It is not known to me whether he is living or dead.
