GEN. ADRIAN ROOT Death of the Revered Commander of the 94th Regiment -- His Record in the Civil War. Many a veteran in this section will read with sincere sorrow the an- nouncement of the death of Gen. Adrian Root, which occurred at Buffalo. Gen. Root died Sunday, age 66 years. He served throughout the civil war, entering the service as lieuten- ant colonel of the 91st New York vol- unteers. He was promoted to colonel of the 94th New York volunteers, took command of that regiment at Alexan- dria in the spring of 1863 and served throughout the war, being mustered out with the regiment at Albany, July 31, 1865, with the rank of brevet major general. He was wounded and taken prisoner at the battle of Gettysburg, together with a large number of the regiment, who were all paroled on the field. Col. Root was sent to Camp Parole, Annapolis, Md., where he soon at- tained command of that camp, and was retained in command until after Lee's surrender at Appomattox. The regiment was retained in the field at the front except during the winter of 1864-5, when Col. Root got permission from the war department to have his regiment detailed at guard for the camp, until the campaign of the Wilderness, 1865, opened. Gen. Grant then called the old veteran 94th to the front. Gen. Root was a good military officer and well liked by his com- mand. The news of his death will be received by the old veterans of the 94th regiment with sadness, as nearly every one can recall many acts of kindness, sympathy and cheer be- stowed by the colonel as they knew him, on the march, in the hospital and on the many bloody battlefields in which this regiment participated under his command.
