A number of those marked dead were either killed in battle or died from their wounds.

This, however, is substantially correct.
I have derived great benefit and assistance from Samuel F. Abrahams
, a brave and intrepid soldier, who lost his right arm at the second battle of Cold Harbor
, and who will take pleasure in answering any inquiries which may be made.
His description of the second battle of Cold Harbor
is extremely interesting and is worthy of a niche in the temple of history, as is also the description of Stephen A. Duncan
and Charles R. Stegar
, of General Pickett
's famous charge at Gettysburg
, is the address of Mr. Samuel F. Abrahams
; Manteo, Buckingham county, Va.
, is the address of Mr. Stephen A. Duncan
, and Beesville, Buckingham county, Va.
, is the address of Mr. Charles R. Stegar
It will be difficult to find three braver or better Confederate soldiers.
