Bugle, containing an account of the
wounding of Leander M. Comins,
'60, Lieut. Co. A, 1st Maine Cavalry,
in the battle of Dunwiddie Court
House, March 31, 1865. Lieut. Com-
ins, who had been wounded in the
retreat of the Federal army, was

went back after him and carried him
off in the face of the advancing en-
emy. He died, however, ten days

man than Lieut. Comins ever died
for his country in any time or clime,
-pure at heart, possessed of the fin-
est sensibilities, and thoroughly im-
bued with a true Christian spirit, he
was in the highest degree a Christian
gentleman and a soldier."
