The End of Lawrence O’Bryan Branch

William A. Blount was the father of Lawrence O’Bryan Branch’s  widow, Nancy Haywood Blount. In this Telegraph to Brigadier General Lawrence O’Bryan Branch’s sister, Mrs. R. Williams states that his son had gone to bring the Brigadier General’s remains back to Raleigh, North Carolina. He asks that she come to Raleigh as soon as she can, for it would be “the greatest comfort,” probably to his grieving daughter.

This telegraph ends our coverage of North Carolina’s Brigadier General Branch and the Battle of Antietam.
