Colonel Cantwell
Cantwell, Col., of 82d Ohio Regiment, fell at the second battle of Bull Run, August 30. At the moment he received his death-wound, he was gallantly leading the left wing of his regiment, which was giving way under the fire of an overwhelming force of the enemy. Scarcely had his men recovered and again advanced, before a Minie ball struck him under the left eye, and penetrating the brain, causing instant death.
