Obituary

VETERAN DIES ON TRAIN

Charles W. Segar Was Enroute to Soldiers' Home in Virginia.

April 28. Charles W. Segar of this city, veteran of the Civil War, died Wednesday while enroute from Jacksonville, Fla., to a soldiers' home in Virginia, aged 76 years. He was with L battery, 1st Vermont Heavy Artillery, at the opening of the war and later with 12th United States infantry.

He was one of four men, all that remained of a battery, which made a charge in April 6, 1863, at Little Sailor Creek, said to be the last time that Vermont troops swung into action in the Civil War.

Since the war he conducted a fruit farm in the State of Washington for many years, but 15 years ago he retired and returned to Rutland.
