Tombstone Tuesday - Thomas Harris Civil War Vet

This is Thomas Harris in Allegheny Cemetery, Pittsburgh PA.  He is my 2nd great grand uncle. Thomas died in the Civil War.  Sadly his stone is too worn for me to be able to read it.  But here is what I know about him.

Born 1839 in New York.  He was mustered in the PA Regiment 46, Company F infantry in September of 1861.  He died April 7 1862 in Winchester, VA at age 23.  The cause of death listed in the cemetery records is "Fighting for his country against the rebels".

Thank you Thomas for making the ultimate sacrifice and your service to our country.
