BENJAMIN N. WRIGHT was a large muscular man, always ready to do his own duty and assist any less fortunate than himself. He tented with three others and none of the four were less than six feet tall or weighed less than 200 lbs. He was large hearted, generous and brave. At the battle of Gettysburg he was shot through the body and died that night. He was shot just before we made the flank
movement which made Stannard's brigade famous and as we passed him when we changed front he raised on his knees and while the air was full of shot and shell he bade us good by and many of us shook his hand as we passed him. His funeral was held in Montpelier after we came home and many of his comrades attended it.
