      "Col. Henry W. Burdsal died at his residence, at Foster’s Crossings, last Sunday, of paralysis. He was born in 1822.
      In connection with the two Armstrongs, he raised the old Washington Cadets, in Cincinnati, and served with his company under General Taylor in all his battles up to Buena Vista, when the company’s time expired, and they were sent home. He then joined General Scott, and was with his army in all their fights. On his return home he engaged in the drug business with his brother the firm name being Burdsal & Brother. At the breaking out of the rebellion he raised the first cavalry company in Cincinnati, and joined the army in West Virginia, was wounded in the side at Cheat Mountain, which caused an abcess to form, with a partial paralysis of his right side; from this he never recovered, and it was the cause of his death. On the discharge of his company, in connection with Col. Kennett, he raised the Fourth Ohio Cavalry, and served actively for over two years, when he was compelled to resign, from ill health caused by his old wound."

  • Thomas Worthington (1807-1884) - Colonel 46th Ohio Infantry & Mexican War Veteran
    • grave at Grandview Cemetery, Chillicothe, Ross County, Ohio
    • Beers History of Warren County page 669
      "Col. Thomas Worthington has long lived the life of a recluse on the west side of the Little Miami, in this township. He is a son of Gov. Thomas Worthington, graduated at West Point in 1827, and served in the Mexican War. In 1861 he published a work on military tactics. Early in the civil war he raised a company, and was afterwards commissioned Colonel of the 46th Ohio. At the battle of Shiloh he commanded this regiment. Col. Worthington has published a history of the battle of Shiloh, and many pamphlets in which he claims that his regiment was, without notice, transferred from the center to the extreme right of the Union line, far detached from the main army; that its right being suddenly threatened, the 46th, by a prompt change of front, attacked and repelled a superior flanking force, till ordered back about 2 P. M., April 6, thus holding the extreme right of the line long enough to make advancing aid available; that this regiment, being a part of Gen. Sherman's division, that officer obtained credit for this service, to which has been imputed the rescue of the Union army from imminent destruction, and to this service is due Gen. Sherman's past promotion and present position. A few months after the battle of Shiloh, Col. Worthington was tried by a court martial on several charges, one of which was the publication of extracts from his diary, containing false and libelous matter, designed to injure his superior officers, Col. McDowell, Gen. Grant and Gen. Sherman. The result of the trial was his dismissal from the service; but the sentence of the court was afterwards declared null and void by the Judge Advocate General, and he received an honorable discharge from the service. In many pamphlets published by Col. Worthington, he has charged Gen. Grant and Gen. Sherman with falsehood, negligence and mismanagement. Being in reduced circumstances, Congress, recently, notwithstanding his repeated attacks on men who stood high in the confidence of the nation, passed a special act granting him a pension."
