Willard Glazier, author, born in Fowler, St. Lawrence County, New York, 22 August, 1841. He spent his boyhood on a farm, and was educated principally at the state normal-school at Albany. He taught in Schodack, New York, in 1859-'60, and in 1861 enlisted in the 2d New York, or Harris cavalry regiment. He had reached the rank of lieutenant, when he was taken prisoner in a cavalry skirmish near Buckland Mills, Virginia, on 18 October, 1863, and sent to Libby prison. He was afterward transferred to Georgia, to Charleston, and then to Columbia, South Carolina, whence he made his escape, but was recaptured near Springfield, Georgia He escaped again from Sylvania, Georgia, 19 December 1864, and returned home, his term of service having expired, but on 25 February, 18115, entered the army again as 1st lieutenant in the 26th New York cavalry, and served till the end of the war. He has since devoted himself to literature, and frequently delivered lectures. In 1876 he went from Boston to San Francisco on horseback, and was captured by hostile Indians near Skull Rocks, Wyoming territory, but made his escape. In 1881 he made a canoe voyage of 3,000 miles, from the head-waters to the mouth of the Mississippi, and claimed to be the discoverer of a small lake south of Lake Itasca, which he main-rains should be regarded as the true source of the Mississippi. It has since been found that this lake is laid down on the maps of the government surveys. Captain Glazier's works include "Capture, Prison-Pen, and Escape," over 400,000 copies of which were sold (Albany, 1865)" " Three Years in the Federal Cavalry" (New York, 1870); "Battles for the Union" (Hartford, 1874); "Heroes of Three Wars" (Philadelphia, 1878);" Peculiarities of American Cities" (1883) ; and "Down the Great River" (1887). See his life by John A. Owens, entitled "Sword and Pen" (Philadelphia, 1884).
