Biography

CORPORAL ANDREW J. SLAYTON volunteered from the town of Worcester, Vt., September 18th. 1861, Company G, 6th Regt. Vt. Vol., and discharged January 24th, 1862. Re-enlisted into Company H, 13th Regiment in August, 1862, and was mustered out with his regiment July 21st, 1863, having served his full term and returned to Vermont and remained at home a while, but his ardor for the cause of the Union was not satisfied and again re-enlisted and into Company E, 8th Vt. Vol. for one year and was mustered out June 28th, 1865, after close of the war. It goes without saying this comrade was not only a patriot but a valiant soldier. (See page 322 for his picture.)
