George F. Gale, 8th., Vermont Infantry.

Dr  George F. Gale.

Birth: 1827.
Death: 1907.

Children: George Frederick Gale (1857 - 1874).

Burial: Prospect Hill Cemetery, Brattleboro, Windham County, Vermont.

From the 8th., Regimental History.
p. 51., Dr. Gale was well known in the state of Vermont as one of the fore- most men in his profession, was an accomplished scholar, and a gentleman of character and dignity. Governor Holbrook had appointed him surgeon of the regiment on account of his eminent abilities, but the short time which he remained with them afforded very little opportunity for the display of professional skill. After his resignation was accepted, and before his return for home, the line officers signed resolutions which were handsomely engrossed, assuring him of their confidence, and regret at his departure.
