Then & Now: A lone grave of Union soldier at Antietam

This site near the Hagerstown Pike is believed to be the location of the lone grave of 50-year-old John Marshall of the 28th Pennsylvania. Someone scrawled Marshall’s name on the wooden marker. (See cropped enlargement below.) The Irish-born Marshall, who was 49 or 50, was disinterred and reburied at Antietam National Cemetery. You may view Alexander Gardner's original image on the excellent Library of Congress web site.
