Capt William D. Brown
Birth: unknown
Death: Jul. 2, 1863
Gettysburg
Adams County
Pennsylvania, USA

Confederate officer. Commander of the Chesapeake Artillery. Killed at Gettysburg - July 2, 1863.

At the Battle of Gettysburg, on July 2, 1863, during the artillery duel with the Union batteries on Cemetery Hill, Captain Brown was mortally wounded, as he spoke to his men in position on Benner's Hill. A solid shot smashed into his right leg, passed through his horse, and then broke the bones in the left leg. As the horse fell to the ground, three of Brown's ribs were broken.

Captain Brown was taken to the Christian Benner Farm and treated here for his wounds. Upon his death, he was buried there under a large walnut tree east of Rock Creek.

Brown's body was removed from its temporary grave on July 31, 1863, and buried in Green Mount Cemetery, in Baltimore, Maryland.
