Biography

NELSON JOHNSON was forty years old when he enlisted in Barre. He was not a large man, but very strong and athletic. He seemed to us boys an old man. He endured the hardships better than any of the other old men and was a good soldier. He returned to Barre after being discharged and resided there until his death about ten years ago.
