Shortly after the outbreak of the Civil War, Mr. Orton enlisted in Company C, one hundred and forty-seventh New York Volunteer Infantry. He served until the close of war, he was present in nearly all of the large battles fought. In one battle his life was saved by a small testament which he carried in his breast pocket which deadened the speed of a bullet by which it was struck, the bullet lodged in the testament severing every leaf, his only injury from it was a slight flesh wound.
