Warren was wounded in action at the Battle of Cedar Creek, VA, on October 19, 1864. Surgeons amputated his left leg up to the thigh, then five days later transported him to Jarvis U.S. General Hospital in Baltimore, where he died of complications from gangrene on Dec. 15, 1864.

His father traveled from Vermont to Baltimore to be with his son, and was there when Warren died. According to the "Record of Death and Internment," he brought Warren's remains home to Bridgewater, VT, where they were buried on December 18th.
