Veterans off for a ride

4 September 2019

First Lieutenant George Trenchard Ingham commanded Company G of the 11th United States Infantry at Antietam in September 1862. He survived the war and was honored by brevets to Captain and Major, USA for his service.

He died at about 60 years of age after he fell down a flight of stairs while attending the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) national encampment in Philadelphia, PA in September 1899. I hope he got an automobile ride first.
