The Soldiers' Record of Jericho, Vermont


At the annual town meeting, held March 3, 1868, it was voted "that one copy of the Soldiers' Record, to be prepared, be furnished to each family, and soldier without family, in town, who were enlisted to the credit of this town, without charge." Names of the men who enlisted, age at time of enlistment, date of enlistment, names or designation of military unit, rank attained, and the date of discharge or date of death are preserved on these pages. Many records also contain notations indicating whether the officer was wounded or killed in action, and if a pension was granted. Records are nested within a narrative chronicle that briefly examines orders to recruit troops, the resulting military organizations created, and other information related to Jericho's efforts to furnish their quota. This work also provides a list of the Vermont military organizations raised; the date of muster into, and out of, service; the number of engagements, and the number of men furnished by Jericho.
