David Albright

(c. 1838 - 1863)

Home State: Louisiana

Branch of Service: Infantry

Unit: 7th Louisiana Infantry

Before Sharpsburg

He enlisted Camp Moore, LA on 7 June 1861 in Company A, 7th Louisiana Infantry. He was then a single 23 year old carpenter in New Orleans.

On the Campaign

He was mortally wounded, his thigh broken in action at Sharpsburg on 17 September 1862, and he was captured there.

The rest of the War

He was admitted to a US Army hospital in Frederick, MD on 22 October 1862 but died there on 17 March 1863.

After the War

He was originally buried "on west side of [Mt. Olivet] cemetery at Frederick." He was probably reinterred at Hagerstown in about 1874, but has two stones (via Findagrave) at Mt. Olivet and may still be there.
