Col. Ulric Dahlgren, Killed 1 March 1864 in Virginia

Having lost a leg at Gettysburg, 21 year old Dahlgren led a raid with Brig. Gen. Kilpatrick to free Union prisoners in Richmond. They failed. On his body were found papers apparently giving Lincoln's authorization to assassinate Jefferson Davis.
