Biography

WARREN CORSE He was from the town of Enosburg and enlisted September 5, 1862, joined the Bakersfield company and after the organization and muster in was made wagoner of Company G. He was 30 years old at enlistment and a farmer. His education was limited to the old district schools but he by his energy acquired sufficient to enable him to become a useful and well-informed citizen. His life on the farm fitted him for the responsible position of wagoner and in his department he was faithful and on hand night and day. To be a part of the wagon train in camp and on the march, was not only a highly responsible but often extremely laborious position. Such must not only drive but guard the baggage on the march. Comrade Corse was a faithful, honest, reliable man and soldier and discharged the manifold duties of his position with rare tact and good judgment. His kindly nature was manifested in his care and gentle treatment of the horses and mules in his charge. He was quickly aroused when anyone abused a horse or mule in their charge. He did his full duty and was discharged with his regiment at Brattleboro, Vt., July 21, 1863 After returning home and remaining for a few brief months again volunteered on October 28, 1863 and joined Company A, 17th Vt. Vols., and was made fourth sergeant a position that he was well qualified to fill. He was mortally wounded at Spotsylvania Court House, Va., May 12, 1864 and died May 14th. His regiment was in the battle of the Wilderness May 5, 6 and 7, 1864. Comrade Corse by his second enlistment demonstrated that he was as brave and courageous in battle as he was kind and gentle and humane as a teamster.
