Three N. J. Survivors Of Antietam Battle

New Jersey has three surviving veterans of the Battle of Antietam in the Civil War. They are Nelson Ferry, 93, of 154 Princeton avenue, Dover; George C. Eldridge of 15 Park avenue, Dumont; and Ebenezer T. Jarvis of 10 Carnegie avenue, East Orange.

Eldridge plans to attend part of the two weeks' celebration commemorating the conflict at Hagerstown, Md. The ceremony which opened Saturday will end September 17 with re-enactment of the battle. Health will not permit the other two veterans to attend.

The Newark Evening News went out of business in 1972 and the Newark Public Library obtained the photo and clipping morgues. This article is used with permission of the library.

None of the New Jersey men is listed as visiting the Antietam celebration, but Nelson Ferry is listed as attending the Gettysburg 75th Anniversary Reunion, according to The Last Reunion of the Blue and Gray by Paul Roy
