George M Boyer, son of Israel and Mariah Boyer a member of Company F 7th Pa. Cavalry, 80th Regiment died in hospital at Andersonville, Ga. Sept. 30, 1864 aged 22 years and 8 months. When the traitors assaulted our government and tore down our emblem of liberty, George considered the interest of his country as paramount to all other interests and gave his service to it. For nearly 4 years he acted the part of a true and brave soldier participating in some 18 or 20 battles and at not time was he found absent from his post of duty. He fell as a man, he died for his country. He sleeps quietly on the southern soil. Peace to his ashes and comfort to his friends.
