Biography

CHARLES SMITH enlisted from the town of North Hero, Vt., August 25, 1862; at the age of 21. Deserted October 11th, 1862, the very day that the regiment left Camp Lincoln for Washington. A man by this same name enlisted into several regiments and deserted. If the same person he had a mania for joining the army, but not for fighting. There are 8 different references made in Peck Roster, but I am sure it cannot mean the same person.
