Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 10. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Sketch of Third Battery of Maryland Artillery. (search)
stream a mile in the rear of the battery, and there buried it in the darkness, by the fitful and uncertain light of torches. The funeral services were performed by Mr. Brown, a friend of the deceased, and a candidate for the ministry, belonging to the same detachment. They returned with saddened hearts and bitterly thought of the morrow. Corporal McCurry was from Rome, Ga., and was a polished gentleman, a Christian, and an excellent soldier. There was not a better artillerist in the army. The capture of the transport Minnesota in May, 1863, was due in a great measure to the excellent manner in which he handled his gun. The losses of the Third Maryland section at Jackson, during the seven days it was under fire, was as follows: Killed--Corporal L. McCurry, Private Henry Gordon. Wounded--Sergeant Daniel Toomey, Privates Brown, Emmit Wells, and J. P. Wills. Lieutenant Ritter was also wounded on the instep by a piece of shell, but was not obliged to leave his command.
