William L. Jackson

St. Johnsbury Caledonian

July 6, 1866

Fatal Accident

Mr. Wm. L. Jackson, son of Mrs. J.C. Durham of this place, was fatally injured on the 17th under the following circumstances. He was on his way to Montana territory, and in going up the Missouri River, the steamer Gallatin burst a flue. Being disabled, she floated down the river, and in getting out the anchor, young Jackson was struck in the left side by a lever from the capstan, receiving an injury from which he died on the 19th. Mr. Jackson was only 25 years of age. He was with the 3d Vt. Regiment three years as hospital steward, and was a skilled apothecary. The news of his sad death is a great blow to his family and friends, to whom the first news came on Monday last.
