|Death: ||Jul. 2, 1863|
Civil War Confederate Officer. “Tell my father that I died doing my duty” were the last words of William Lowndes Daniel, a 1st Lieutenant in Company I, 2nd South Carolina Infantry. He died as a result of a wound received during action at the battle of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. He was originally buried “on the gravl walk in the woods” on the Rose farm. There are some who say that it is possible that Lieutenant Daniel was re-interred in Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston, South Carolina under the erroneous name of E.W. Eure. Lieutenant Daniel was 30-years old at the time of his death. His brother James was also killed at Gettysburg.
