HENRY C. RUSSELL
Enlisted from Richmond, Vt., September 10, 1862, at the age of 30 years in Company F, 13th Vt. Vol. Inf., and mustered into the service as a corporal October 10, 1862, and assigned to duty with the regimental colors. Killed July 3, 1863, at Gettysburg, just before the regiment made the flank attack on Pickett's charging columns. After the regiment returned to its place in the line, the body of Corporal Russell was buried on the field by his company comrades, and the grave marked by a head-board prepared by Corporal B. F. Brown. After the Company had been mustered out and returned to Richmond, Vt., Private Amos Brown went to Gettysburg and removed the body of Corporal Russell for its final resting place.
