Letter From C. A. Orr With Information On Death of Walter A. Cook.

C. A. Orr (Company E, 10th Alabama Regiment), Oxford, Ala., refers to an inquiry in the VETERAN sometime ago for W. A. Cook, of whom he writes: "Walter A. Cook enlisted at Talladege, Ala., June 5, 1861, in Company E, 10th Alabama Infantry Volunteers, Wilcox's Brigade, A. N. V., and about the latter part of 1862 he was elected captain of the company, In the battle of Salem Church, Va., he was mortally wounded and was taken to a country home, where he died in a day or two. He was a brave, good man and was loved by every man of the company."
