His name was Thomas Snelling of Company G 14th Iowa Infantry. He was shot in the head and instantly killed during the opening moments of the 14th Iowa's assault on the breastworks.
According to a fellow soldier's newly re-published memoir, and letters from other companions, his body lay in the open for quite a while then was recovered under fire by a party of his messmates. He was then buried on the field and a salute fired over his grave.
I am seeking any clues that might lead to where his grave may be now. I did not see his name on an online list I found once of those exhumed and reburied in a National Cemetery. I cannot find that list today. If it helps, two others of the 14th Iowa (different companies)were also killed there that day, Sergeant Major Stillman Smith and the Color Guard Willard Hall. They all may have been buried together. Does anyone in this forum have information about these Iowa men?
