3 Pge ALS by Famed Irish Brigade Commander Thomas Francis Meagher.
HQ Irish Brigade Sept 8th  1862 3 days before the Battle of Antietam.  "
Thomas F. Meagher Autograph Letter Signed. Two and one-half pages, 8" x
10", "Head Quarters Irish Brigade . . . Fort Defiance, near Rockville, Md.,"
September 8, 1862. Gen. Meagher here writes to acting assistant adjutant
general Col. Francis M. Rotch regarding the commissions of two men. Of the
first Meagher remarks: "I no longer believe that Capt Gallwey . . . should
have any commission in this brigade. Capt Gallwey, whilst on my staff,
proved himself in every engagement we had with the enemy, and on other
occasions, an unqualified coward, and utterly unworthy in other respects of
having the command of soldiers." He continues by stating that it would
"exceedingly gratify me to have the vacancy, caused by the resignation of
1st Lieut Phillip O'Hanlon . . . filled by an accomplished young friend of mine,
a son of Samuel Neil . . . I forget his Christian name. . . . He is a highly
educated, high-spirited young gentleman, and has had sound military
training." Docketed on the verso of the third page. Lightly toned along the
folds which show some separation at the edges.

he was transferred to the 17th US Infantry Regiment.[4] He was stationed at
Ft. Preble, while the rest of his regiment fought in early battles in the East. In
late June, 1863, Greene finally took command of the 17th Infantry. During
the Battle of Gettysburg, Greene commanded the unit during heavy fighting
in the Wheatfield, where the regiment lost 25 killed and 125 wounded. A
monument to the 17th Infantry Regiment, inscribed with Greene's name, was
erected on the site. Following the Battle of Chickamauga, on September 20,
1863, Greene was promoted to full colonel and transferred to the 6th US
Infantry. On 13 April 1865, Colonel James D. Greene was promoted to

"Albert Trorillo Siders Barnitz was a captain in the 7th US Cavalry
commanding G Company of Major Elliott's squadron during the Battle of the
Washita. Barnitz was born on March 10, 1835, at Bloody Run, Pennsylvania,
in Bedford County, but moved to Ohio shortly after his birth. He attended
Kenyon College and the Cleveland Law College but was for the most part a
self-educated man. Barnitz toured the Midwest, conducting classes in
elocution and performing dramatic readings, and in 1857, he published a
volume of poetry.
Barnitz enlisted in 1861 as a sergeant in G Company of the Second Ohio
Volunteer Cavalry. He saw action on the Kansas frontier against William
Quantrill's guerrillas. He also led a raid on Confederate transportation lines
in Tennessee. This mission was a complete success but proved nearly fatal
to Barnitz, whose horse slipped and fell on him, causing severe injuries that
included a broken jaw. After his recovery, he was reunited with his regiment,
and served in Virginia, where the Second Ohio had become a part of the
Army of the Potomac. Barnitz was later awarded a brevet to major for
gallantry and meritorious services at Ashland Station, where he was
wounded in the thigh while leading his men in a charge on foot. In
September 1865, the Second Ohio was mustered out of service. In
November 1866 Barnitz received an appointment as a captain in the 7th US
During the morning of November 27, Barnitz sustained a gunshot wound to
the stomach while skirmishing with fleeing Indians. It is believed that Magpie
shot Barnitz. Although he was expected to die, the captain survived his
ordeal and was awarded a brevet to colonel for distinguished gallantry.

Albert Barnitz died on July 18, 1912, in Asbury Park, New Jersey, from the
effects of a growth that formed around the old wound. He was buried at
Arlington National Cemetery.
