KILLED AT CEDAR CREEK
A dispatch from Capt. E.P. Lee of the 11th Regt. brings the sad intelligence that his brother, Lt. Oscar Lee, of the same regiment, was killed, and he himself was injured in the arm.
These young men are sons of Nath'l Lee, Esq., of East St. Johnsbury. So again this community, and the country at large, called to mourn over the fallen patriot; and another hero has sealed with his life's blood his devotion to his beloved country.
The Caledonia, October 28, 1864
