Upon Us Rests the Burden
Vol. 1

Daniel T. Cole

Charlotte, Vermont, like all towns both north and south, was a microcosm of the war effort — its people and politics generally representative of the greater population. Men and boys from our town were involved almost from the time of the firing on Fort Sumter, to and beyond the end of the fighting war. Some left their homes to confront the tragedy of war; some did not survive; some survived to return to confront tragedy at home. Few, if any, of these men and boys who left to join the army came back unaltected.
