Milton Grey Litchfield - Private   
Milton Grey Litchfield was born in Scituate Massachusetts on March 10, 1844. He was the son of Sumner and Lillis Litchfield. Milton and his brothers were raised in the ancestral home of their Great Great Grandfather Nicholas Litchfield who built it in 1738 and still standing. Their landholdings were large and portions of the land is preserved today as conservation. In August of 1862 Milton enlisted with several Scituate men in Co. F 43rd Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry in Readville MA. Later that September the regiment took ship for New Bern NC and upon arriving reported to Camp Rogers outside New Bern on the site of an abandoned plantation. During the nine months that the regiment was active Milton saw action at such battles as Goldsboro,Kinston,Whitehall and Little Washington. When not in engagements the men drilled and worked in the pioneer details where they removed tree obstructions from roads blocked and repaired bridges set fire by retreating Rebel forces. One letter survives from Pvt. Litchfield from New Bern in which he describes to a 'Friend William' about what is was like to go into battle. His writing and that of other Scituate men that survive is clear and concise. A testament to the good village schools back in Scituate. Returning to Scituate in the early Summer of 1863 with his enlistment expired. Milton returned to the family farm with health issues recorded as rheumatism and lower back strain. On August 10, 1864 Milton reenlisted in Co.C 4th Massachusetts Heavy Artillery. Before he left for garrison duty in Washington D.C, he married Sarah Waters Stoddard one of three daughters of Deacon William Stoddard of Scituate. On June 17, 1865 Pvt. Litchfield was discharged from Fort Richardson VA. He returned home to his bride and family and resumed farming. The responsibility of operating the family farm soon fell on Milton's shoulders as his brother Sumner returned from the war too ill to work. In 1875 Milton built a home next to his father's house and later the family built a house next to Milton and Sarah's for his dying brother and his family in 1877. Milton and Sarah had one child, Winnette in 1877. In 1875 Milton was one of the original 35 members to join the George W. Perry Post 31 GAR in Scituate. He remained a devout member for the rest of his life.He was later honored by the Womens Relief Corp#121 by the establishment of The Milton G Litchfield Tent Daughters of Union Veterans. Numerous photos of him survive in his later years at GAR parades and functions. Milton is remembered as an exceptional market farmer. Neighboring farms and agricultural schools sought his advice on soil conditions & fertilizing and crop rotation. He was considered the foremost authority on cauliflower cultivation and his advice is still recognized today. Milton Litchfield passed away at the age of 90 on August 5, 1934.
