HIRAM W. SCRIBNER volunteered from the town of Middlesex, Vt, Sept. 8, 1862, and joined Company C. His age was said to be 18, but he did not look so old, certainly appeared too young for the life of a soldier. He was of sufficient size and height and was active and anxious to become a soldier and there was an urgent demand at this date, and most anyone that was anxious to go was given a chance. He was a clean, fine looking boy and enthusiastic to join and put on the blue, carry a gun and be a soldier, and therefore passed by the medical examination and accepted. Nearly all of these young boys made the bravest and best and endured better than those past 40. It is true that young Scribner was a good boy as well as a valiant soldier. He served his full term and was mustered out July 21, 1863, having won an enviable record and gratified his youthful ambition to go to the front and help us save the Union. The patriotic devotion still controlled the loyal heart of this youthful soldier and he volunteered again in August, 1864, and joined Third Battery, Light Artillery, commanded by Captain Romeo H. Start, and here served till the end of the war. He moved West some years ago and is now residing in Atchinson, Kansas. His picture taken in 1862 is on page 206.
