A Maryland Warrior and hero. Death of Major William W. Goldsborough, of the famous Maryland line, C. S. A. Military funeral in Baltimore—sketch of his eventful life and distinguished services—soldier, Journalist, Historian. By Winfield Peters, Lieutenant-Colonel, etc., U. C. V., Maryland Member Historical Committee, etc., United Confederate Veterans. On Christmas afternoon last the startling information was telegraphed to Baltimore of the unexpected death in Philadelphia of Major William Worthington Goldsborough, to Captain George W. Booth, acting President of the Society of the Confederate States Army and Navy in Maryland, to the writer and to Sergeant Richard T. Knox, a famous soldier, who accompanied the Major when reconnoitering. A telegram was sent to his widow, Mrs. Louise Goldsborough, to forward the remains to Baltimore, to be buried with military honors in the Confederate burial plot, Loudoun Park Cemetery.

ng struck down by a bicycle, after which he never walked without crutches. While in the hospital in Philadelphia he met and married his wife, who faithfully nursed him to the end. He hated to die, and fought death with his tremendous will-power. Once he said to his wife: Should the end come, don't bury me among the—Yankees here; send my body to Broad-street station, and ship it to Winfield Peters, Baltimore. His command was obeyed. Major Goldsborough's remains reached Baltimore Friday, December 27th, and the funeral took place Saturday afternoon. The cortege formed at the main entrance to Loudoun Park Cemetery and moved to the Confederate plot. In front was a drum-and-fife corps, followed by a volunteer battalion from the Fifth regiment infantry, M. N. G., under Captain N. Lee Goldsborough. Then came the honorary pall-bearers and Rev. William M. Dame, D. D., chaplain. The hearse and carriages came next, with the active pall-bearers beside the hearse, then followed delegations

Goldsborough at Hunterstown, Pa., near Gettysburg and the battlefield. No one but Major Goldsborough has ever attempted to chronicle completely and historically the deeds and incidents connected with the Maryland Confederates. The Maryland Line, C. S. A., was created by Act of the Confederate Congress, and consisted of infantry, cavalry and artillery, under Colonel Bradley T. Johnson, whom General R. E. Lee declared, with diffuse compliments, most worthy to command Marylanders. A grandson of Colonel Baker Johnson of the Rebellion of 1776-‘83; he had under him some fifty cousins, and not one conscript or substitute! These are my jewels. The widow of Major Goldsborough was Miss Louise Page, of Virginia, connected with the distinguished Lee and Page families, her father being a cousin of General R. E. Lee
