Antietam: Marvin Wait's grave in Norwich, Conn.

Snow partially obscures an American flag near Marvin Wait's grave at Yantic Cemetery
in Norwich, Conn. Wait was killed at Antietam.
Snow piled atop grave markers for Marvin Wait and his father, John, after a late January storm in Norwich, Conn. Marvin, a 19-year-old lieutenant in the 8th Connecticut, was killed at Antietam on Sept. 17, 1862. He is buried in Yantic Cemetery, the final resting place of many Civil War soldiers and Connecticut's Civil War governor, William Buckingham. My thanks to blog reader Dave Oat of Norwich for supplying this neat shot.
