Biography

SILAS G. JOHNSON volunteered from the town of Cabot, Vt., September 8th, 1862 at the age of 33, and joined Company H. Promoted corporal May 29th, 1863. Comrade Johnson earned the chevron stripes that adorned the sleeves of the coat he wore and he was proud and thankful. He was a first class man and soldier, and throughout his service displayed good judgment and was alert, never flinching from any duty no matter how dangerous the service. (See page 326 for his picture.)
