The wounded were unattended for 54 hours. Nearly all are buried in unmarked graves in the National Cemetery there.

Do you have any information on Archibald Allen?
He's my grandmother's great grandfather.
I just ran across the web site as I just recently started tracing
my families.My Bigelow connection comes through Rachel, daughter of Amasa
ad Roxanne Cone, who married David Loomer. His son, Stephen married Massa
Lyon and their daughter married W. B. Mayo who were my great grand parents.
Their daughter Lucy married Ned Benschoter whose Daughter Neola Joyce was
my mother and married George Redding Maddison. My dad's mother's family
goes back to Richard Warren, a Mayflower passenger.
