Jeremiah Potter

Jeremiah Potter was possibly the Regiment’s youngest casualty. Rest in peace, son. God only knows the travails you dealt with as a boy or the hardships your mother faced in deciding that the cavalry was a better life than she could provide for you. I’m sure the other troopers at Fiddler’s Green take care of you.
