Who We Are
A grassroots project documenting the story of the State's contributions to the war, and what happened to the participants during and after the war. For the purposes of this project, anyone who was born or died in Vermont, regardless of where they served, and anyone who served in a Vermont unit, regardless of where they were born, we consider a Vermonter. To that end, to date we have documented more than 38,450 of Vermont's men and women who participated, on both sides of the war. (more)

Scores of the men who had fought through the battles of the Wilderness and Spotsylvania unhurt, had fallen at these fatal cross roads, and as the command filed silently out of their works on the night of the twelfth, their thinned ranks plainly told the sad brave story of their last twelve days' work.' (Haynes) 06.12.1864 Newton Glazier, 11th Regiment, from Seminary Hospital, Georgetown, D.C. (more) 06.12.1864 1st Lieutenant Edward B.
