Follow up – 73rd Ohio

I a recent blog posting, I recounted visiting a Chillicothe, Ohio, cemetery during a business trip and seeing several graves from veterans of the 73rd Ohio, the regiment in which President Nixon’s great-grandfather served.  I should add that another soldier from the 73rd was laid to rest here in York, Pennsylvania, not far from my home. Private Thomas A. Reedy was shot and wounded at Gettysburg and transported after the battle to the York U.S. Army Hospital. He expired from his injuries and was taken to Prospect Hill Cemetery for burial, far from his Ohio home.
