BIOGRAPHY

JAMES D. GERMAN was born and bred in Milton, enlisting from that town at 19 years of age in Company D. He was a good soldier, though preferred to scout around outside, doing a little foraging for private requirements, to standing camp guard or attending regimental drills. It is said that he was an expert in "poker," which game, in a small way pre- vailed in camp about pay day. He served with the company during its term and was with it at Gettysburg escaping without a wound, and was discharged July 21st, 1863. Leaving Vermont he entered the employ of the Central R. R. of New Jersey, and died in Jersey City in 1904.
