BIOGRAPHY

ANDREW LUCIA a brother of Mitchell, Andrew Lucia enlisted with him in Company D, being 19 years of age. Of large, compact build, great strength and activity, he was a valuable man in the Company. Of a bright, sunny disposition, full of fun and jokes he added much to the social life, and brightened the weary march, and dull days of cold and rainy camp life. He had a tremendous appetite and the writer has seen him consume his entire day's rations of 22 ounces of warm, fresh baked bread, with 12 ounces of salt pork, at one sitting. He served his term without a day's illness, made the Gettysburg march, fought through the battle, returned with the company to Vermont, married and settled down in Milton, where he now lives with his family on his own place, and though much crippled by rheumatism, with the aid of a liberal pension, in comfortable circumstances.
