"As more than a thousandVermont infantrymen fell in the Wilderness, the Vermont Cavalry also waged a desperate fight at nearby Craig's Meeting House. Among the Vermonters captured there was Truman Naramore. Confined at infamous Andersonville, Naramore was reduced to crawling about the fetid grounds. But he survived to become a successful farmer, businessman, and inventor, even joining bthe California real estate boom. His story, a fascinating one told ably here, sheds vivid light on the type of individuals who, as as cirizen soldiers, gave Vermont an outsized role in the Union victory."

Civil War historian and author
