Civil War Series on Sunday - First Union combat fatality this day 1861

Civil War Series on Sunday 
First Union combat fatality this day 1861

Every day for the next few years, we can follow what happened 150 years ago on that date, in the Civil War conflict. I think occasional reminders are of value. Most of us had ancestors in the Civil War.


"On May 22, 1861, in what's generally regarded as the first Union combat fatality of the Civil War, Pvt. Thornsbury Bailey Brown was shot and killed by a Confederate soldier at Fetterman Bridge in present-day West Virginia."
