Recollection by Edward Warren, Warren Brothers at Gettysburg, July 7, 1863

Edward Warren, detail
Edward Warren, who was then serving as Surgeon-General of North Carolina, recalls the events at Gettysburg involving his two brothers. The younger, Crittenden, was a lieutenant of the 52nd North Carolina Infantry who was critically wounded in Pickett's Charge. His elder brother, Llewellyn, a Confederate surgeon, was captured when he stayed with the wounded who could not retreat. Dr. Warren had first heard that his brother was dead, then dying and set out to find him among the captured Confederates. This he did and nursed his brother back to health. (By John Osborne)
