Biographical or historical data :

The Third Vermont Volunteer Infantry Regiment was formed within 30 days of the shots fired at Fort Sumpter (April 1861). The Third Regiment was comprised largely of men from eastern Vermont, from Springfield to Coventry, and was divided into 11 companies (A through K). Companies A through F assembled at Camp Baxter (St. Johnsbury) during May and June 1861 for training, clothing, arms and orders. The regiment was mustered June 16, 1861 with 882 officers and men, and, on June 18, received orders to move to Wilmington Delaware. The Third Regiment was to leave Vermont by July 1, however, June 21 marked the first battle at Bull Run (Manasses), and the regiment left St. Johnsbury on June 21, 1861. On the way south, the regiment picked up their commanding officer, Colonel William F. Smith, in Hartford CT. By June 26 they had reached Washington and began their service. The regiment was decommissioned June 19, 1865.
