MEMBER OF VT. BRIGADE DIES
Ephraim Haskell Used Crutches for 30 Years, Result of Wounds.
Brattleboro, Jan. 6 - Ephraim Haskell a member of Stannard's famous Vermont brigade, who had to use crutches for over 30years as a result of a wound which he received in the battle of Gettysburg, died a t his home here this evening.
He was born in Wilmington, January 27, 1827, and was a son of Ephraim and Salina (Stetson) Haskell. While a young man he went to New York and entered business with apartner in the manufacture of spades and shovels, but the partnership proved disastrous and the concern failed.
He returned to his native town and enlisted on September 3, 1862, with company F, 16th Vermont volunteers, the regiment commanded by Col. Wheelock G. Veazy. Mr. Haskell was one of the 200 men sent out on the picket line and was wounded by the bursting of a shell on the last day of the battle of Gettysburg.
