From the ECW Archives: Phil Kearny’s Death

Phil Kearny (LOC)

Here’s a piece from a couple years ago on the September 1 anniversary of the death of Phil Kearny. It’s a description of the fallen Kearny by Pvt. John Haley of the 17th Maine. Haley’s entire memoir is a pleasure to read, and this account really stands out.

Read the comments, too. Reader Ed Wenzel made an excellent contribution to the discussion regarding the reported circumstances of Kearny’s death.
