Obituary

Excerpt from soldier "Anti-Rebel"; From the 6th Corps; City Point, Va. April 9, 1865

Captain Charles C. Morey, was killed Sunday by a grape shot, while charging the enemies works. Capt. Morey had been a soldier almost four years; he came out with his regiment, and had been with it through everything since, except for a short time he was absent in hospital, from a wound received in the Valley. He was faithful and fearless, and rigidly abstained from any appearance of dissipation. He came out as Corporal, and had risen to Captain, and at the time of his death was considered one of the most reliable officers in the regiment. It seems a hard fate to perish in the last struggle, after having passed through so many.
