BIOGRAPHY

CORPORAL AZRO A. PLATT was born in East Montpelier, educated in the common district schools and grew up to manhood like the most of the boys of Vermont, brought up on a farm. His age at the time of firing on Fort Sumter was 28, hence fully realized that the country was in danger and war was sure to come. After due consideration, volunteered into East Montpelier Company under Captain Coburn and because of age and other good qualifications was appointed Sth corporal. He was not a natural born soldier, but still acted well his duty during his term of service. He died at Waterbury, Vt., November 22nd, 1906, and is buried at Barre, Vt.
