KILLED IN ACTION – Among those who fell in the terrible battle of May, was J.G. B. Nichols, son of Mr. James Nichols, of Essex, Vt. He was a young man of 19, of fine and worthy personal qualities, who joined Co. I of the 6th Regiment, as a recruit, in December last. A letter from Sergt. Williams says he was wounded through the body while fighting bravely, died upon the spot and was buried on the battlefield. He adds "he was a good soldier and we shall miss him much in the company."
