From the PBS series "American Experience Death and the Civil War": Henry Bowditch following his son`s death, campaigned for an ambulance corps to transport wounded soldiers. He had traveled to visit his wounded son Nathaniel in Virginia, only to find he had already died. He arranged transport for the body to be buried at home. Included in the PBS "American Experience: Death and the Civil War", his father went to see his wounded son when notified. When he arrived and learned of his death, he arranged transport home for burial.
