KILLED AT GETTYSBURG,BURIED AT BALTIMORE GREENMOUNT : from letter written July 9th 1863 by CAPTAIN JOHN THOMAS JAMES (CSA) 11TH RGENT VIRGINIA VOLUNTEERS: "Captain Houston was mortally wounded. I did not get to see him during the engagement and cannot tell how he acted, but as he was as brave as the brave can be, no doubt as to what and how he did. He was shot through the bowels with a Minnie ball while leading the regiment into the thickest of the charge. "
