Biography

WINSLOW L. BLANCHARD enlisted at Montpelier. He was the shortest man in the company, and was familiarly called "Stub," and although small of stature he was always ready to fight If any one cut his corners. He was wounded at Gettysburg, being struck on his cross belt and ended over without drawing blood. The shock rattled him and he screamed and ran and was not seen again until the fight was over. He has resided in Montpelier since, and is still a familiar figure on the streets.
