On June 19, 2022 the town of Brattleboro unveiled a corrective and interpretative tablet that was placed next to the Civil War Soldiers’ Monument.  A town committee crafted the text of the tablet and the Select Board approved the new installation and funding for the project. The inaccuracy of the monument was first brought to the town’s attention in January 2020 by Brattleboro Area Middle School students.

In 1887 the town erected a monument on the Common which stated 31 men serving Brattleboro had died in the Civil War while 385 had served…research conducted using vermontcivilwar.org, Vermont’s Revised Roster of Vermont Volunteers in the War of the Rebellion, Cabot’s Annals of Brattleboro, Fuller’s  Men of Color, To Arms!, Burnham’s Brattleboro: Early History,  and Civil War-era digital newspapers revealed more information.

After reviewing the research conducted by BAMS students and historical society members, we believe a more accurate count would be ENLISTED 450  DIED IN SERVICE 56

The original count seemed to have been an incomplete community effort.  At the dedication of the monument those mentioned in the ceremony were from prominent or long term local families.  The original count missed substitutes, working class laborers who were living in Brattleboro at the time of their enlistment, and some of those who joined the Navy. 

The Revised Roster of 1892 lists almost 500 men credited to Brattleboro.  We have combed through that list and found approximately 425 Civil War soldiers and sailors born here, living here, or substituting for men from here. Others on the list were credited to Brattleboro because they died in the Brattleboro military hospital or moved here after the war. We have established that 56 died as a result of serving during the war.

The number of substitutes has been problematic.  While we have been able to locate 38 substitutes who took the place of Brattleboro men, Henry Burnham’s Brattleboro: Early History, states that there were 55 substitutes.  In our research, we have found substitutes written about in contemporaneous newspaper articles but the men who acted as substitutes are not named. Often the Brattleboro men who paid for the substitutes are identified while those who actually served remain unknown.  This has caused us to suggest that an approximate number of 450 be established for those serving during the war.

The criteria we used to compile the list:

-credited to Brattleboro by vermontcivilwar.org or Men of Color, To Arms!

-credited to Brattleboro by the Revised Roster and born in Brattleboro 

-born somewhere else but credited to Brattleboro and verified by contemporaneous newspapers as living in Brattleboro

-substitutes for Brattleboro men recorded by vermontcivilwar.org or the Revised Roster 

-sailors credited to Brattleboro by Revised Roster, but credited to Vermont by vermontcivilwar.org and located in contemporaneous newspapers

We removed those who were credited to Brattleboro because they moved here after the war.

We also removed those from other places who died at the Brattleboro military hospital, were buried here, and credited to Brattleboro even though they were not from the area.

We believe our list, (while more comprehensive), should also be considered incomplete.  As the war continued into late 1863, towns and states were in competition with one another to meet enlistment and draft quotas.  This competition led some recruiters to incorrectly identify the hometowns of some of their recruits.  Many draftees chose to pay the government or procure substitutes so they would not need to serve.  The recording of these transactions were not always preserved.

The approximately 450 soldiers and sailors identified as serving Brattleboro, and the 56 who died as a result of that service, should be considered a minimum number.  There may be others who will never be known. As more research is done these numbers will undoubtedly be adjusted.

This research was conducted by Brattleboro Area Middle School students and the Brattleboro Historical Society
