Captain Marcus C. Horton.

Push to enlarge.
Captain M. C. Horton was passing along in the rear of the line, a shot from a rebel sharpshooter hit him in the forehead, and he dropped dead without a struggle or a groan. Captain Horton was one of nature's nolilemen, kind and generous to a fault. He was loved by all who knew him, while his uncomplaining endurance of fatigue, hardships and want, and his coolness in
scenes of danger and strife marked him as one of the bravest of the brave. A half dozen of Companv D carried him to his resting place.
