Dwight P. Moore

Vermont Phoenix

August 27, 1863

In Brattleboro, July 31st, of typhoid fever, Dwight P., son of Ephraim Moore, of Dover, aged 22 years. He was a member of Co. F, 16th Vt. Regt., and during his term of service faithfully discharged the duties required of him. He was in the battle of Gettysburg, and bravely fought for his country against the invading foe; spared in the conflict, bright anticipation of soon seeing his home and friends filled his mind; but they were hopes never to be realized. With difficulty he reached Brattleboro, but was never able to be conveyed home. This sad bereavement is more deeply felt by the family, because of their recent affliction, in the death of a beloved son and brother, in the same regiment. They had fondly hoped one would be spared to them, but God saw fit to order it otherwise. And deeply as we feel our heavy loss, yet we know He does not willingly afflict, nor grieve the children of men.
