Last Union Soldier Dies 1956 Albert Woolson, the last accepted Civil War veteran of the Union Army, died on August 2, 1956. At the time of his death he was reputedly 109 years old. However, census data indicated that Woolson was likely 'only' 106 years old. Woolson's father had been killed at the Battle of Shiloh. Woolson enlisted as a drummer boy in 1864. His unit did only garrison duty, so Woolson never experienced combat. After Woolson died, Life Magazine did a seven-page feature on him.
