Biography

LEANDER PERRY brother to Charles, was thirty years old when he enlisted. He stuttered badly and like many who have Impediments in their speech he had many by-words, and made much amusement for his comrades who will all remember how he used to say, "B-B-By g-g-g-gosh a-a-all H-H-Hemlock." He was not very well and did not take good care of himself, but he stuck by and was discharged with the company. He re-enlisted in the Seventeenth Vt. Regt. and died in the service.
