ieutenant Latane took charge of the body, hoping to find friends to bury it. He found a negro boy driving the mill-cart from Westwood, the home of Dr. William S. R. Brockenbrough, and the adjoining place to Summer Hill, Mrs. Newton being a niece of Mrs. Brockenbrough's. Mrs. Brockenbrough took charge of the body, and, as a Federal picket was in possession of Westwood, Lieutenant Latane was supplied with a horse by Mrs. Brockenbrough, and at once rejoined his command. This was on the 13th of August, 1862, and on the following day Captain Latane was buried at Summer Hill. The picture is a correct portrayal of the burial, with the exception of the mythical figures. An Episcopal minister was sent for to read the services, but he was not allowed to pass the pickets, and as the men were all in the army, the funeral had to be conducted by the ladies of the two households, assisted by a few family servants that were too faithful to run away or that were too infirm for the Yankees to carry.
