Among the New Englanders that fell in the bloody contest near Murfreesboro, was Capt. A. J. Hosmer, a native of Vermont, and formerly a resident of Boston, whence he migrated to the West a few years since. He was in the 44th Illinois regiment, and was shot through the head while rallying and encouraging his men. He was a brave officer, beloved by his men and respected by his superiors. He left a wife who is now in Boston, and several children, but all of the latter but one have since died.
