I have seen this same information in his Civil War files. (still working on them). Going through this book is quite interesting. Will probably blog about the book later.
Wounded twice but still lived to be 83.
The James McHenry Howard is not the only brother who served in the First and Second Maryland Infantry. There are a couple of other names in this book that “are family”.
