Archie Baxter - Reading


Archie Baxter was born in Saddle Hills on 13 December 1881. Archie Left school when he was 12 years old and started working on a farm. The reason Archie left school at age 12 was because his family was poor so he had no choice but to leave school and work on a farm. Archie had to face a horrifying punishment for being a conscientious objector. He got tied to a hard wooden pole and stayed out in the cold freezing weather, like that. His entire body was freezing like a statue and his hands were, dripping down blood because of the coldness. But Archie did not give up so he stayed like that until he got let go. Archie had a wonderful wife that he married on 12 february 1921. Archie had 2 children named, Terence and James. Terence and James followed their parents footsteps and had a wonderful life the End.
