Biography

JOSEPH TRAVISEE enlisted from Winooski was somewhat older than the average, is now over eighty, has followed the trade of a carpenter. He is still quite hale and resides in Burlington. Joe was a genial, always good feeling soldier, not inclined to find fault but sometimes drew comparisons, as at one time after conditions had been a little hard he said to Captain Munson, "Captain, this ain't much like being home sitting on Frank Allard's steps drinking beer." The comparison was so obvious, extreme hardship and ease, that it amused the captain and he related it to me with gusto years and years after. As a soldier Joe was faithful to the end of the term and was mustered out with the regiment.
