War diary and letters of Stephen Minot Weld

July 2. — Started from Westminster in the cars at 5 A.M. and reached Baltimore about 12. I gave my mare to an officer of the 84th Pennsylvania, who promised to send her to our headquarters train. In Baltimore we met Major Reynolds, the general’s brother, and Mr. Gildersleeve, his brother-in-law. We had the body embalmed, and placed in a coffin, and at 8.30 P.M. took the train for Philadelphia. We reached there about 12, and met Rosengarten’s father and brother. The general’s body was taken to his brother-in-law’s, Mr. Landis. We went to the Continental.
