LAMOILLE NEWSDEALER: OCT. 18, 1861
HEADQUARTERS COL. BERDAN'S REG.
CAMP BURNSIDE, CO. F. WASHINGTON.D.C.
OCTOBER 8TH, 1861
DIED, in this regiment, of Co. F. from Vermont in the sixth inst., Mr. Edward Fitts, of West Wardsboro, aged 22 years. Mr. Fitts was taken sick soon after we arrived in camp with inflamation of the bowels. He was kept in the camp hospital until last Saturday, the fifth inst., when he was sent by Dr. Marshal to the city hospital where he could have better care, and on Monday, the 7th, we learned that he was dead and buried. Our company are the first to mourn the loss of one of her noble sons. Mr. Fitts, was when we left Vermont as tough and healthy looking young man as we had in the company but death that fell destroyer is in our land, and we know not where he may strike next, although I suppose all things are for the best at least we must trust in providence and hope for the rest.
