WAR FOR THE UNION

      For nearly half a century after the War of 1812 peace brooded over the green hills and fertile valleys of Vermont. Youths had grown to manhood and old age; the gray-haired grandsire, as he trotted the children upon his knee, rehearsed to them the tales they best loved to hear -- tales of the deeds of the brave MCDONOUGH and "Old Ethan." Prosperity asserted itself in the hum of busy machinery, telling of the increase of manufacturing interests in the silver threads that were branching in all directions, proclaiming the route of the “iron horse" as it conveyed to prosperous marts the harvest surplus. The sun rose each morn on a prosperous, happy, contented people; but alas! as its rays gilded the Green Mountain summits on the morning of April 21, 1861, it awakened no answering smile in the hearts of the people. The first shot upon Sumter had frightened away the angel Peace, and grim War reigned in her stead. The hearts of the "Green Mountain Boys" were again touched with the old fire of patriotism and burped with martial ardor the dreams of peace were forgotten; naught was remembered but their insulted flag -- the flag purchased with the blood of their fathers -- to which they owed their liberties, homes, and the plenty that surrounded them.

      Side by side with her sister states Vermont endured the weary marches and bore the brunt of battles, and side by side their sons sleep the long sleep -- some 'neath the sun-kissed plains of the willful South, and some rocked in the bosom of the broad Atlantic, "held in the hollow of His hand." Others have been borne to rest among their kindred by sympathizing friends, who, year by year, to muffled drum-beat, wend their way to their consecrated tombs to deck their graves with beautiful spring flowers -- a national tribute to the gallant dead, 5,128 of whom Vermont sacrificed as her share towards the preservation of the nation's unity, freed from the curse of slavery, so long a foul blot upon her fair fame. Vermont promptly filled every quota, and every dollar needed was furnished with alacrity. Of her treasure, $9,087,352.40 was expended in furnishing the 34,238 loyal sons and representatives who went out to fight the battles of their country, 5,022 of whom were discharged from the service with shattered constitutions, or maimed in body, to renew the peaceful avocations of life as circumstances would permit. The following complete roster of men who went from Washington county as commissioned officers, and of those who, enlisting in the ranks, were subsequently promoted to a commission, is compiled from the State Adjutant and Inspector-General's report of 1866, and from other sources. For convenience the names are arranged in alphabetical order, the dates referring to commissions, the date of muster being omitted:
