At 21 years of age enlisted in August, '62 in Company D at Milton. He was an exceedingly lively young man and even at this writing, travels a rapid pace. If there was any frolic in the regiment, or any foraging outside, Sanders was one of the fore- most. He did his full duty though with much grumbling in hard times. Much inclined to argument, he was always in a wrangle, and added variety, at times, when otherwise, it might have been monotonous. Serving out his full term, he re-enlisted in a battery and was severely wounded. After the war he located in Milton, later moving to New York, and is now a prosperous farmer in Vermont.
