Veteran dies on steamer
Edward B. Caldwell, a veteran of the Civil war, died on the Cape Charles steamer yesterday morning, while en route from Philadelphia to the National Soldier’s Home. Mr. Caldwell went to Philadelphia some months ago to visit his family.
He decided to return here and would have re-entered the Home yesterday. Heart disease is given as the cause of death.
The body was brought to Old Point and turned over to the Home authorities. Mr. Caldwell was 67 years old.
