Horace C. Sylvester, a dry good merchant, and a veteran of the Civil War, died Wednesday at the Hotel Bossert, Brooklyn. He was born in Westminster, Vermont seventy-one years ago, and came to New York when quite young.
At the breaking out of the Civil War he enlisted and fought until the battle of Antietam when he was wounded. On his return to duty he was assigned to the War Department and was made a confidential secretary. He remained in the service of the War Department until the close of the war. It was while in that branch of service that he became acquainted with President Lincoln.
At the time of his death he was connected with the Henry Batterfield Company, of Broadway and Graham Avenue, Brooklyn.
