"At the request of the late Philip Ward, who was buried yesterday, the bullet which he received in the Peninsula Campaign and which had remained in his chest for over 50 years, causing him much suffering, was taken from his body after his death and given to the Stannard Post, GAR of which he was a devoted member. Ex. Gov. U.A. Woodbury was a member of the same company with Mr. Ward and is the only survivor of Co. H, Second Vermont Volunteers, now living in this vicinity".
