WILLIAM SLADE volunteered from Middlesex, Vt., September 10, 1862, and mustered into the United States service October 10, 1862. His age was 42, pretty old we younger boys thought for soldiering, but one in Company C older and but five in the regiment. Was one of the stalwart, substantial men of this company. He enlisted because called and was not able to answer his conviction in any other way. He was a good soldier and was in the army for one single purpose, to fight for the preservation of the Union. Was a man of character, never hesitating to do his full duty regardless of consequences. He was mustered out when his term of enlistment expired and returned home as clean and upright as when he enrolled. He died some years ago and is buried at Northfield, Vt. On page 184 will be found a picture of Comrade Slade.
