Obituary

OBITUARY. - Mr. Lyman C. Gale, the only son of Asa Gale, of Salisbury, did at Chicago, Illinois, on Wednesday last. He enlisted in the Saxton River company of the 4th Vermont regiment, after serving some 6 months he was detailed as a recruiting officer in the State, and was afterwards transferred as a Lieutenant in the Derby Line Company, attached to the 10th regiment. He was promoted for meritorious conduct in battle, and attached to Gen. Morris' staff, as aide de camp. On the occasion of a review, having his leg broken by the kick of a horse, he was so disabled that he was unable to join his regiment again before the expiration of his term of service. His remains will be brought to Bellows Falls for burial.
