BIOGRAPHY

ARNOLD MORTON enlisted in September, 1862, from Milton, and became one of Company D, 13th Regi- ment, being at the time 24 years of age. Though not of a strong constitution he was every day on duty cheerfully obeying orders, and finding no fault. Of a quiet and peaceful turn of mind, he was never engaged in any of the occasional squabbles in the company, but when the time came for action, he was in the front rank, cool and collected, with an intention to make every shot tell. After his discharge with the regiment he returned to Milton where he, at this writing resides, a quiet, respectable, and respected citizen.
