John W. Woodbury

St. Johnsbury Caledonian, July 27, 1864

Sergt. John W. Woodbury, of Co. D, 1st Vt. Cavalry, a son of the late Rufus H. and Amanda H. Woodbury of Concord fell mortally wounded in an engagement with enemy at Nattoway court house, Va., June 23, and died the following day, aged 21 years. In his death the company of which he was a member have lost a brave and esteemed officer, whom they can ill afford to spare, but like thousands of others he has offered his life upon his country's altar, and with them his blood cryeth from the ground, "No truce with traitors till this accursed rebellion shall be put down and universal freedom shall be established throughout the land.".
