Lt. Col. Townsend died bravely in battle Cheering his men during a charge. We need help adding sources and honoring this brave soldier who gave his all for his country.
Seems the Charles who died 1 june was a different Townsend.

Find A Grave seems to be in error; however he is well mentioned in 106th Co. H and being KIA at Cold Harbor. The obits have much about his brave actions
Per obit he was buried by the Confederates in the place he died after he was in their field hospital and expired the next day
I see it says on find a grave “Burial record for this person states it is a 1 year old child”?
Thank you Marion
Why is there a red flag on my response ?
