Old Charley was the Civil War horse of Redfield Proctor. The grave is on the front lawn of Redfield Proctor Jr.'s former home.
In June 1903, Senator Redfield Proctor invited veterans of the 15th Vermont Infantry, which he had commanded, to a reunion at his home. A special train brought about 250 guests. There were many activities, "but the mecca for the veterans was the grave of 'Old Charley,' Senator Proctor's war horse that served him so faithfully. The horse was purchased originally in Lyndon and was a Morgan of the most pronounced type. His grave is marked by a twenty-ton block of marble." (from the book "Proctor: The Story of a Marble Town" by David C. Gale, pub. by the Vermont Printing Co., Brattleboro, 1922)
