Biographical ALLEN GREELEY
Allen Greeley, Waterbury, aged 22 years, died at Alexandria Hospital, July 30th, 1864, belonging to Co. B, 10th Vermont Reg't, wounded at Cold Harbor, June 1st, 1864, compound fracture of the thigh. Funeral services at Waterbury Centre, Sermon by Rev. C. C. Parker. Text: Lamentations, 1:15th. He enlisted after the memorable retreat of McClellan before Richmond, where the nation was in danger, and called on her sons to defend her, influenced by no pecuniary motives, allured by no bounty, but out of pure unselfish love of country. - He was a noble, brave and generous soldier respected by all his comrades for his unflinching performance of every duty assigned him and for his genial and winning manners. He has made the great sacrifice. He has given his all for his country. His bones lie bleaching in a distant land, with no "marble column" to mark his last resting place, but his memory will live enshrined in the hearts of all who knew him, and a monument, "more lasting than brass" will be his reward.
