Excerpt from Life of Luther C. Ladd: The First Martyr That Fell a Sacrifice to His Country, in the City of Baltimore, on the 19th of April, 1861, While Bravely Defending the Flag of the Nation, Exclaiming With His Dying Breath, "All Hail to the Stars and Stripes!"

In presenting this work, this history of Luther C. Ladd, of Alexandria, to the loyal American Public, the Author believes that the perusal of the same will be interesting to the Community; and to the Union-loving man at this time, it will be a source of pride to know and feel that brave and noble actions are remembered and honored by a grateful people.

It is the Author's fortune to have known Luther C. Ladd from infancy and to have been present at his funeral, - one of the vast cortege that followed his remains to the grave.

Not much is said of the mother of Luther, as she died when her son was seven years of age, leaving a bereaved husband and six children to mourn the loss of a kind companion and an affectionate mother.

The father, John Ladd, subsequently married the sister of his first wife with whom he now lives.

It is probable that our young hero inherited the love of adventure from his father's family. John Ladd was too young to engage in the war of 1812, but two of his older brothers served during the war.

For the account of the funeral ceremonies that occurred at Lowell, we are indebted to the Editor of the Vox Populi.

Since this work was written, by the urgent request of the Governor of Massachusetts and the Municipal Authorities of Lowell, the friends of the deceased have consented that his remains should be removed from Alexandria to Lowell, where they now remain entombed, with the assurance, that when the smoke of the conflict shall have passed away, a suitable monument shall be erected, by the patriotic citizens of Massachusetts, to the memory of Luther C. Ladd and Addison O. Whitney, the first Martyrs in this eventful war.
