Pvt. Harry I. Buzzell grew up on a family farm known as “Buzzell Hill” with ten brothers and sisters.

He was drafted in October 1917 and reported to Fort Devens, Mass. that month.

By November 1917 Harry was at Camp Gordon in Atlanta, Ga., where he remained until he was shipped off to England in June 1918.

In a letter addressed to mother and home folks from April 7, 1918, Harry writes,

"Not that I do not value my life or that I do not love my folks and all the people at large, for I do. Although I never was much of a boy to show my love, but I do not think the folks understood me in many ways. But now I am willing to fight, suffer, and die for you and them, that the world may be free and have peace that can’t be had till this war is won in the right way, which I pray may come soon. All I am sorry for is that I ain’t a stronger and better man for Him."

Harry Buzzell died on October 21, 1918 of wounds received in action.
