Four times this year death has invaded the ranks of our Confederate Veterans' Association (Camp No. 756 U. C. V.), and two more comrades have now bivouacked on the heavenly shore. Ingersoll Washburn died on March 14, after a brief illness. Of quiet, retiring disposition, he was not very well known even to members of the Camp, though he was a regular attendant upon the meetings. Comrade Washburn entered the service of the Confederacy in June, 1862, as a private in the Savannah Volunteer Guards, Company B, 18th Georgia Battalion. In November of that year he was detailed in the Signal Corps, and continued to serve in that capacity until the close of the war, surrendering with Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, Army of Tennessee, at Greensboro, N. C., April 26, 1865. After th e war he came to Savannah and held positions of a clerical nature for many years, but had not been actively engaged for some time. His wife died a few months before him, two daughters and a son surviving him.
