Final Roll Call
The last surviving veteran of the Civil War was Albert Henry Woolson, who died in 1956 at the age of 105.
The last veteran to die in Vermont was Harriet Holmes, nee Hinkson, a nurse, and the last soldier was Gilbert Lucier. Both of them served with the 11th Vermont.
But the 1860 Census reported about 42% of native-born Vermonters were not living in Vermont that year, and most of those served in units of other states. This list includes veterans who were born in Vermont, or served in Vermont units and are buried outside Vermont, so there are several who died after Lucier.
