BIOGRAPHY

JOSEPH MINER AND GEORGE MYERS

Two young men who enlisted from Winooski, Vt. Of Miner I remember but little, certainly nothing to his disadvantage. He stayed to the end and was mustered out with the regiment. Myers, I think, was the youngest soldier in D, pretty full of fun, apt to be mischievous. The only really distinguishing thing about George was the fighting qualities displayed in battle. The order to cease firing came too soon and it instantly affirmed that a rebel fell from a shot from his gun after the order to cease firing. George saw further service in the 2nd Vt. Battery.
