The quest of a “distressed mother” to find her son, killed at Spotsylvania’s Bloody Angle


From the Fredericksburg Ledger, June 26, 1866, more than two years after the fighting at the Bloody Angle and a year after the end of the war.  Oliver H.P. Anderson served in the 48th Mississippi of Harris’s Brigade, which held the works near the Bloody Angle on May 12, 1864.

  1. Sad. Probably initially buried on the CS side of the trench, and later relocated to the Spotsylvania Cemetery.
