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.
