Civil War Deaths – March 7 to May 28, 1862

It was very moving to type the following death records.  Civil War soldiers from the Kentucky Infantry and Cavalry, a few men whose last names began with the letter T, one page from a book of many.  Of the 24 men on this list only 8 were killed in battle or of a gun shot wound.  The rest were victims of typhoid fever, pneumonia, bronchitis or other diseases.  It seems such a waste of precious life.  God bless these men who gave everything for their country – and all those who continue to do so today.

    | Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will steal your honor. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse. ~ Mark Twain | | | | | | |
