Obituary

Died, at Camp Parole Hospital, near Annapolis, Sergeant James E. Miller, 11th Vt. Artillery, aged 28 years.

He responded to the first call for 75,000 men and served the term of three months. Then enlisted in the 60th New York where he remained until January 1863, when from sickness and wounds received in battle he was discharged. He came home and in a few months regained his health; and still feeling the fire of patriotism burning in his bosom he again enlisted in the 11th Vt. Artillery which place he occupied at the time of his death. - He was among the many prisoners sent to Georgia where after suffering all the horrors of a southern prison, he was paroled Dec. 14th, 1864, (being an inmate of the rebel prison for nearly six months) and arrived at Annapolis where he remained until the time of his death Though called to pass through deep waters of affliction, he rejoiced in the God of his salvation and died in the hope of a glorious immortality beyond the grave. His remains were conveyed to his friends in Warren, Vt., where he has left a wife and two small children with a large number of relatives and friends to mourn his untimely end.
