Richmond "Daily Dispatch", 8 May 1863:
"He was taken to a hospital where medical assistance was rendered; but, it was too late; the life blood was spilt, and thus died one of the noblest of the noble. Responding to his country first call he started with his company to meet the enemy in the spring of 61 never from the struggle for liberty till death laid him low at his post. First at Bethel, lost at Suffolk, he was brave and unshrinking in the defense for which he shed his young hearts blood. Active and faithful in the discharge of every commission and duty and self denying in the extreme, he want to love and admiration of his men and officers and of all who knew him."
