BIOGRAPHY

HARVEY H. TALCOTT was a lawyer in an office in Winooski when he enlisted. There was some talk about electing him second lieutenant but as it was generally understood that two of the commissions were all Colchester could have, and they would go to Munson and Rolfe, Talcott entered the ranks as a private. In stature he was slight, and come to get our knapsacks, guns and other equipments there seemed to be a disproportion between his strength and the weight to carry. Coming from an office to the hardships and exposure incident to a soldier's life it was soon apparent that he could not endure it. he became sick and was removed to a hospital and after recovery sufficient for work was retained as hospital nurse until May 2nd, 1863, when he was discharged for dis- ability. After the war he went to Chicago and was associated in some capacity with Captain Coburn of the 13th. For a few years he has been spending a portion of the summers in Vermont, where he enjoyed meeting his old comrades and friends. A genial companionable man. He died Oct. 27, 1908.
