No. 570. A Lone Grave on Battle-Field of Antietam. This grave has been identified as that of John Marshall, 28th Pennsylvania: John Marshall is unique among the named fallen on the Elliott map. Born in Ireland in 1812, John was 50 years old—considerably more seasoned than his comrades—when he enlisted on July 27, 1861 as a private in the 28th Pennsylvania’s Company L. A stonemason in Allegheny City—which became part of Pittsburgh in 1907—John left behind much upon enlisting for although his first wife had died of consumption in 1855, their son William remained at home, as did John’s second wife Mary—18 years his junior—and their sons two year old Samuel and infant John, Jr. John Marshall and the 28th also marched into their first major fight that morning at Antietam, despite having served for most of the war to September 17, 1862. Assigned to Lieutenant Colonel Hector Tyndale’s Brigade of Brigadier General George S. Greene’s Division of the XII Corps, they waited while Hooker’s I Corps men battered themselves in taking and retaking the Cornfield. Sometime around 8:30 that morning, however, the 28th and Tyndale’s Brigade was sent into action as part of the “swinging door” advance. Driving through the East Woods and finally securing the Cornfield, John and his regiment relentlessly advanced until reaching the Hagerstown Pike’s eastern edge. Short on ammunition, the 28th and Greene’s Division remained aligned on a slight rise—roughly where today’s NPS visitors center stands—for over an hour before pushing across the road to secure the Dunker Church, where they remained until being driven back sometime before 1:00 p.m. John Marshall, however, probably never witnessed the regiment’s stand around the Dunker Church given the location of his burial. John’s final unique feature is that his battlefield grave was captured by photographer Alexander Gardner, shortly after the battle. Photographic historian William Fassanito in 1978 confirmed the location by identifying the still-existing rock formation and enlarging the image to read John’s name inscribed on his wooden marker. John’s body was moved to the Antietam National Cemetery by 1866 but the loneliness and sadness of his battlefield resting place haunts viewers even today.
