FRANK LAVALEE was one of the best workers in the daily routine of camp and picket duty, road building or whatever came to him; gun and equipments always in good condition and his general appearance faultless. He escaped injury in battle and re-enlisted in the 17th regiment and served to the close of the war. He died in 1883.
