York soldier killed at 1862 fight at White House, Virginia
Edward King was among those Union soldiers from York County, Pennsylvania, who perished during the Civil War. I have found very little about this soldier, whose name does not appear in the database of the York County Heritage Trust.
White House, Virginia, was the site of a major Union supply depot along the York River during the Peninsula Campaign. Brigadier General Silas Casey’s infantry brigade defended it.
Does anyone have any information on Private King?
