Lewis Hyde who died in this town last week was a soldier in the Union army; went in at 14 years of age and served two years till 1865. At Kilpatrick's raid in Richmond in 1863, he had a horse shot under him, and at the battle of the Wilderness was unhorsed a second time, and got a ball in his shoulder. From the effect of this wound he never recovered, and has been an invalid since, for the past seven or eight years unable to do anything, and has been a great sufferer. -- Union.
