EDWIN CARROLL volunteered from the town of Enosburg September 6, 1862, and joined Company G, of the I3th Vt. Vols. No particular incident marks his career while serving as a soldier in this company. He was born in 1844 and only 18 years when enrolled for the war, a mere lad and it would seem too young for the awful struggle and carnage of the battlefield. But it is nevertheless true that nearly all of the young, smooth-faced boys endured the hardships of army life better than older ones. He was brave and useful on the battlefield as any. This youthfull hero acquitted himself with honor, served his full term, was mustered out with his regiment July 21, 1863, and returned home and the overflowing joyousness of his young heart was more than thankful that he had fought and helped to secure victory at Gettysburg. No act or position in this comrade's life so valuable and honorable as fighting for the Union.
