Your one of my Heroe's giving the Ultimate Sacrifice in the service of your Country.
Trustum mustered into the 90th Regiment NY Infantry Sept 3, 1864 in Portland, NY. He was 5"4", light complexion with grey eyes & brown hair, he joined up with the Regiment Oct. 16 in Virginia. The Battle of Cedar Creek took place 3 days later in the predawn hours of Oct. 19th. Under the command of Gen. Early the Confederates attacked the mostly sleeping Union Army; characterized by complex maneuvers and a high level of confusion experienced by both sides, Trustam was wounded in the Battle. 4 days later he was admitted to Satterlee Field Hospital, West Philadelphia, PA. I'd assume the wounded traveled both by wagon or walking with assistance. It's difficult to imagine the pains wounded soldiers went thru in those days. He was later discharged from the Hospital only to re-enter again on Jan. 18, 1865 with pneumonia where he died May 27th, 1865.
This was the last Major Battle by the Confederates and the War quickly wound down after this. That part of Virginia had provided the major food supply for the Southern Forces.
