At the age of 19 [as written] he entered the 12th Vermont infantry and fought in the civil war for nine months, being mustered out a sergeant. After the war Mr. Dodge moved to this city, where he has lived ever since. He was a fireman and afterwards an engineer in the employ of the Central Vermont Railroad company for about 36 years.
