According to one account, "A Durham, Maine couple found a man in a confederate uniform in the casket that was supposed to contain the body of their son. Unsure of where they should send the casket, they buried the man in the corner of Strout Cemetery." In another tale, "the fallen confederate was mistakenly sent to Maine instead of Durham, North Carolina." A third version suggests that "the soldier died on his way to Canada after escaping from a New York prison."--from the book Maine Remembers Those Who Served. 2001 Dept. of Sec. of State.
