Re: General Grant's cavalry escort at City Point, Virginia. March, 1865
Just for the visual of the image as the time (likely 1862), place, and circumstance are not known..
Here is my great-great grandfather Anderw Miller of Company "M," Col. Marcus Reno's 12th Pennsylvania Cavalry.
He was promoted to corporal, but later resigned saying he did not want to be responsible for other men's lives.
He was held as a "traitor to the regiment" for voting for George McClellan in the Election of 1864
Wounded in March of 1865, he died of his wounds in May, leaving a wife and four year old daughter.
His grave in the city cemetery was bulldozed over and made into a grass park over the now unmarked graves.
