CALEDONIAN: DECEMBER 9, 1864
DIED IN HOSPITAL:
Died at Base Hospital, near Bermuda Hundreds, Nov. 29, Rev. Thomas Kidder, Co. H., 9th Vt. Vols. Mr Kidder was once settled as pastor of a church at Windsor, this State, but latterly had resided in this town. About one year ago he enlisted in the service of his country, and joined the 9th regiment of Vermont Vols., then stationed at Newbern. His regiment some weeks since was transferred to the 18th army corps under Gen. Butler. Mr. Kidder went into the hospital about the 1st of November, sick of chronic diarrhea, --- then somewhat reduced, and as the event proved, past recovery. He enlisted in the Union Army from patriotic impulses, and the testimony concerning him concurs in representing him a faithful and useful soldier.
