BIOGRAPHY

JOHN ANDRESS was a native of Milton and at the alleged age of 18 enlisted in August, 1862, in Company D of the 13th Vt. Regiment. He was a boy full of fun rather inclined to recklessness, always ready to have a good time and equally ready to perform any duty to which he might be assigned. He was one of those who accepted circumstances as they came, and found no fault. If rations were short, and the march hard he made no complaint, but was cheerful and contented. In camp with plenty to eat, little work, pleasant weather, and a good place to sleep he was equally happy. He now resides in Burlington and though not so strong and hearty as 48 years ago, is just as cheerful and happy as in the days of long ago.
