Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Death Of A Soldier.-Emanuel Chrisinger, a member of Company I, 7th Maryland Volunteers, died at the residence of his family in this place, on the 24th instant, in the 51st year of his age. The deceased was among the first in this State to buckle on his armor and go forth in defense of the Government and was ever found in the foremost ranks upholding the right. Taken hold of by disease, he was granted leave of absence to visit his home, but all that could be done for him by loving friends failed to restore him to health: May the turf ever be green over his grave!

Death in Hospital.-David Rose, private Company H, 1st Regiment Western, Virginia Cavalry, aged 17 years, died on Sabbath morning, 6th inst. The father of the deceased having been notified of his illness was present with him in his last hours to sooth and cheer and catch the last farewell to loved ones. The remains have been removed to Wheeling, Va. (his home) for interment, the Post Surgeon having provided a beautiful silver mounted walnut coffin, with travelling case for the body. The ladies (God bless them) adorned it with flowers and immortelles, symbolizing the purity of that patriotism that led one so young to lay himself a sacrifice upon the altar of his country, and the victorious garlands of the conqueror who struggling with earth has gained immortality. He has fought his last battle.

“Requiescat in pace.”
