Obituary

A Tribute to a Union Veteran

Louis Roberge, known to many as Louis Roberts, who was recently called to his home above, was a member of Company C, 12th Regiment, Vermont Volunteers. He was a faithful soldier and friend as the writers knows from personal experience. The disease which terminated in death, was no doubt contracted through hardships and exposure while in the line of duty. The writer knows from being associated with him in the service, how faithful he was, and remembers his kindly and happy disposition. Many of his comrades will remember his kind assistance while on long, weary marches. Although his duties were arduous and severe he never murmured, but ever gave a cheerful obedience to his officers. Good bye, faithful soldier and friend. H. R. W.
