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.
