My great grandfather and his three brothers all fought in the Civil War. Three for the north and one for the south. Obviously, my great grandfather survived but his three brothers did not. I have found the graves for everyone but Thomas Sutton who was killed Aug 30, 1862 during the 2nd Battle of Manassas. I can't seem to find information on what happened to the Union dead after this battle and where they could possibly be buried. Thomas was in the 7th regiment, company C, Wisconsin Infantry. Any help is very appreciated. FYI My great grandfather was an officer in the First Missouri Engineers of the West for over three years. He was discharged and reinlisted two months later with the 7th regiment Wisconsin Calvary where he stayed until the wars end. He took part in 42 engagements. He was at the seige of Vickburg and the capture of Island 10. His brother, James, was taken prisoner and died in Andersonville as a POW. His brother John, serving with the Confederates left to go to war and never heard of again. He died in Texas in 1866 and is buried in the Antioch Cemetery, Anderson, Texas.
