Biography

MILO K. GRAY enlisted from Waterbury. He was the son of a clergyman and one Sabbath morning a party of us were on picket on Cub Run and it was proposed that we have religious services and he was selected to preach. He objected, but was compelled to do so; it took some vigorous treatment to make him preach, but we applied the treatment until he consented, and preached a very good sermon, although his discourse consigned some of his hearers to a warm climate. He was discharged with the regiment, but I have no knowledge of his whereabouts since, but am quite sure he never followed in the footsteps of his father.
