BIOGRAPHY

MILAN L. FROST was one of the brave boys that volunteered from the town of Worcester on the 29th day of September, 1862, and counted on the quota of that town; joined East Montpelier Company commanded by Captain Lewis L. Coburn. He was young, only 19, as the company record shows, but surely looked and appeared much younger. It may be that he was fearful he would not be permitted to go if age given under 18, cases of this kind being common at this period of recruiting. This young man was anxious to fight for his country and was happy when he reached the front and was given duty on the picket line. His devotion, obedience and attention to duty commanded respect and gave promise of usefulness as a soldier. The arduous duties of march and picket line, sleeping on the damp, cold ground, often without shelter, was too much for his delicate constitution and he was taken sick at Camp Fairfax Court House and died March 6, 1863. His body was sent home and buried in the village cemetery of Worces- ter, Vt. He freely gave his lite for his country. May his patriotic devotion never be forgotten. His picture will be seen on page 204.
