Civil War Burials
- This appears on Vicki Betts's Web site:
"The plan is now generally adopted in Gen. Grant's army, when
burying the dead, to place in the grave with the body, a sealed
bottle, containing a paper, on which is written the name and other
particulars respecting the dead." Leavenworth (Kans.) "Daily Times,"
January 8, 1865, p. 2, c. 2
