CAPT. LUCIUS H. DRURY, formerly from Swanton, was dangerously wounded in the late war, in a reconnaissance in force by Gen. Van Cleve's division, about 14 miles from Chattanooga. Capt. Drury commanded the 3d Wisconsin Battery, and was Chief of Artillery in Van Cleve's division. He was struck by a bullet in the breast which went through him, coming out near the back-bone, but nevertheless survived.
