NORTH CAROLINIANS BURIED AT GETTYSBURG Taken from an article in the Fayetteville Observer dated September 26, 1864 A friend has favored us with the annexed list prepared with care by a gentleman formerly of this state and no in one of the departments at Washington; who says, it may be some consolation to the friends of the buried to know that the graves are carefully marked and surrounded by a high fence. The 170 names on the list are understood to be those who died in the hospitals at Gettysburg of wounds of disease and were buried in the cemetery there. It is known that others were killed in the battle there whose names do not appear, and who were probably buried on the bloody field where they fell. An equally accurate list of those will probably never be obtained. Of some of these, the friend who enclosed the list to us says: “Among those who fill nameless graves are Lt. Iowa(?) Royster, Tutor of Rhetoric and Elocution in the University of North Carolina, and Lts. John H. McDade, William Mickle, N. Brooks Tinney and Jas. W. Williams of Chapel Hill. Lt. Royster was one of the eight members of the Class of 1860 who received the first distinction at the University and of the eight there are but three survivors. The youngest of the eight and the associate Tutor of Lt. Royster, Captain George P. Bryan, fell leading the charge in the cavalry fight ten miles east of Richmond on the 16th August last. George Wilson, Junius C. Battle and Captain William A. Wooster repose in earlier but not less glorious graves. Of the 81 members who composed that Class, 18 are know to have passed already to that ‘bourne whence no traveler returns.’ We ne’er shall look upon their like again.” W.C.
