SAW LINCOLN ASSASSINATED
Nathaniel G. Reed, Who Died at St. Johnsbury Yesterday, Was Witness
St. Johnsbury, Jan. 7. - By the death of Nathaniel G. Reed, who died here yesterday, Chamberlain post, No. 1, G.A.R., once the largest in the state, has now only 23 members and less than half that number are residents of St. Johnsbury.
Mr. Reed was born Feb. 27, 1838, and enlisted at St. Johnsbury in company I of the Third Vermont. This regiment was in the battle of the Wilderness and Cold Harbor and many other bloody engagements. Mr. Reed was in Washington at the close of the war and in Ford's theater the night President Lincoln was assassinated. He sat in the gallery, only about 25 feet from the president's box and often related the tragic scenes of that memorable night.
