Mr. John Pierce of New Orleans, La., who was 93 years of age, died at his residence, 1658 N. Johnson Street, on March 17. Mr. Pierce was a young man at the time of the war between the states and was very anxious to do his part to help give his people freedom. Having this as the main reason in mind he enlisted in the army of his own accord. He served from 1861 to 1865 as corporal of captain E. W. Bauges camp E Fourth Regiment.
