Obituary

OBITUARY. - The Barton Standard, speaking of Charles Flanders, who died in Sheffield, Caledonia County, Nov. 16th, says:

A member of the Tenth Regiment, he participated with it in all its marches and engagements up to the battle of Cold Harbor, where he received a severe wound in the left breast and side, from which he never fully recovered; yet as soon as he was able to do so, he rejoined his regiment and continued with it until it was mustered out of the service.
