William Scott Camp No. 302 was chartered in 1996. The camp is named after Private William Scott of Groton, VT. Scott served in Company K, Third Vermont Infantry and was sentenced to die for sleeping on guard duty in 1861. Spared by President Lincoln, Private Scott was killed in action on April 16, 1862 at Lee's Mill, VA. Members of Scott Camp are spread throughout the Barre-Montpelier area and the Northeast Kingdom. The camp is actively recording Union soldier's graves in rural parts of Vermont, and hopes to record all the graves in Washington County; the camp has also replaced the gravestones of numerous Union soldiers. Most recently the Camp raised the money to build a brand new Civil War monument in Barre.
