"After serving for barely a month, Pvt. John Young Shitle of the 48th North Carolina Infantry, Manning's Brigade, was mortally wounded on September 17 and died three days later in captivity. He may have been hit during Manning's costly assaults on Greene's division, but family tradition holds that he was struck while reading a letter informing him of the death of his young daughter, Esther."
