Luther Green of St. Albans, of military fame, died recently. When the civil war broke out he was one of the first to enlist, going as drummer with Co. C, Vermont volunteer infantry, better known as the Ransom Guard. He served the three months, during which time he participated in the battle of Big Bethel, Va. In 1862 he joined Co. H, 8th Vt. Regt., and with this company was in the battle of Raceland and Battle Station. He received an honorable discharge from this company and in 1864 re-enlisted with Co. A, 17th Vermont regiment, and served until the close of the war. During this last term he took part in the battles of the Wilderness, Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor and Weldon railroad. Mr. Green began his career as a drummer while very young and had never lost his wonderful skill, though during the past few years he has not appeared in public in that capacity.
