Nathaniel Greene
Patriot of ’76 Whose Body Has Just Been Found.

The recent finding of the remains of Gen. Nathaniel Greene of revolutionary fame naturally directs attention to this man who played so important a part in the building of the nation.  Nathaniel Greene was the son of a Quaker, who strictly enforced the principles of that sect in his home life.  He was born at Warwick, R. I., June 6, 1742. [Article continues with a sketch of his Revolutionary Career concluding with:] At Eutaw Springs he achieved the final victory for the Americans in South Carolina.  Before the close of the war he had taken possession of Charleston.  When peace was declared he settled on a plantation presented to him by the state of Georgia, located at Mulberry Grove.  There he died, in 1786, at the age of 44.  Congress voted him many honors, one of which was the erection of a monument to his memory in Washington. [A pen and ink sketch of Nathaniel Greene accompanies this article.]
