Biography

SAMUEL AUSTIN, JR. enlisted from the town of Warren, Vt., August 29th, 1862 at the age of 32. He had the fun of being captured on the way from camp Carusi to Fairfax Station at the time of the capture of our teams by some of Mosby's bush whackers, but was at once paroled and he returned to camp none the worse for wear except a horse back ride for some 20 miles without blanket or saddle. Mustered out July 21st, 1863. (See picture on page 340.)
