Vermont Newspaper Nuggets, featuring the Second Vermont Regiment

Gettysburgh Soldier's National Cemetery, PA

In the meantime, I thought I could share with you this article on the return of the Vermont Second Regiment from the Civil War. Louis Tourville was mustered out on July 15, 1865. He was one of these men.
