Obituary

Bennington, June 28. Theodore L. Pierce, who died at the Vermont Soldiers' Home here early this morning, had been an inmate of the home longer than any other Civil War veteran who had entered the institution. He was born at Jamaica, Vt., in 1844 and served in New York regiments from December, 1863 to November 23, 1865. He re-enlisted in the regular army in 1866 and remained in the service three years. During his latter enlistment served in what was then the Far West, he met Brigham Young, William F. Cody, Wild Bill Hickok and other border celebrities.
