William H. Green
St. Johnsbury Caledonian
June 20, 1862
Mr. Wm. H. Green, of Sheffield, who died May 28, aged 21 years, was a member of Co. K, 3d Vt. Regiment. His death was occasioned by a wound he received in the engagement at Warwick Creek, near Yorktown. - The services connected with his burial were religious and military. A band of music, discoursing the funeral dirge, with a military guard bearing arms and a beautiful banner, marched in order before the procession from the home of the deceased to the church. An elegant banner, presenting the stars and stripes, dressed in mourning, decorated the walls of the church. The religious services were conducted by Rev. M.C. Henderson of Lyndon, assisted by Revs. Woodman and Whitney. The order of the procession was observed in going to the place of burial. As his remains were committed to the dust, four volleys were fired over the grave. The crowd then retired, having witnessed the burial of the bold and youthful soldier, with an appropriate military display.
