I thought you may want to add this information concerning William Reith to your records.
William Reith: born in Edinburgh, Scotland. 1832; salesman at Kent, Paine & Co., Richmond.
Private; 1st Battalion Rifle Brigade, British Army, 1849 - 56. Served in the Kaffir War, South Africa 1852 - 53, also the Crimean War, participating in all of the battles.
Conscripted: March 7, 1862. Where: Richmond, Va. At this period of 1862 William was involved in the manufacture of the "Reith Knapsack" used by Virginia companies, which he had designed from his experiences in the Crimean War. Wounded and captured at Frayser's Farm, June 30, 1862. Due to incomplete records we can only assume that William after Fort Columbus was emptied of all its prisoners around July 10, 1862, that he was forwarded with others of the 1st Va. to Fort Delaware, being exchanged August 5, 1862.
Died in Glasgow, Scotland, 1898. Buried in Craigton Cemetery, Glasgow.
