An interesting article describing the discovery and burial of two Union soldiers from 2nd Manassas.

An interesting article. I wonder if they took any DNA just in case there were some relatives out there who were interested?

I would think that DNA samples would be routine, in this day and age. The article did say that there would be no effort to identify the remains, but with today's DNA sites and the publicity they have been given, maybe something would show up.

But the article seemed a moot point about identity.
