The daughter of a Civil War veteran has died at the age of 94 in a retirement home after a battle with cancer. Stella Mae Case, who was born in 1918, was one of the last living Americans whose father fought in the epic conflict, according to U-T San Diego.
Although her father John Harwood Pierce died when she was seven years old, Case remembered seeing him dressed in his Civil War uniform for a Memorial Day parade.
