May 6 1863 - how to find soldiers who fell at Antietam

Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information



A gentleman who has just recovered the body of a relative who fell at Antietam, furnishes information which may prove of value to those who desire to recover the remains of friends or relatives buried there. On his Way to the late battlefield he stopped at Hagerstown, at the Union Hotel, kept by Mr. ANDERSON, a Union refugee from Virginia, and was robbed of all he possessed by the rebels. He accompanied the gentleman to the battlefield and spent a day in finding and preparing the body for removal, without charge. In the village of Sharpsburg resides a man named Aaron Good, who has a list of the names of all the Union soldiers buried there, and by his help the graves can easily be found, but he demands a large fee for his services. To persons who may have friends buried in the vicinity of Sharpsburg and who wish to recover the remains, these facts will prove of much assistance.— Chambersburg Repository and Transcript
