Biography

ALBERT P. WOOD one of the trio who used to give us such fine singing and who all the members of the company remember, enlisted from Barre. Blanchard, Gale and Wood we all remember them for their glorious music but they possessed other good qualities. Wood was a soldier who would never complain or ask for favors. He was far from well but would never ask to be excused from any duty. I bunked with him for months and can from my own knowledge say that he would do his duty, and many times when he was not able to do it. He had pure bulldog grit, and was as good a soldier as ever shouldered a gun. He is now living in Boston, and has a good position on the electric road.
