Came across this, kind of got to me as the scene got to the reporter. His emotions on encountering what had come to be such a common event it was barely noticed, caused him to ' photograph ' one man's final moments, his sacred passing from this world to the next. Glad he did.

From Camp Griffith, outside of Washington, DC, around the same time this article would have been written- burial of federal soldiers. Sometimes we see these photographs of 150 years ago without looking at them.
