Civil War Veteran Buried Over Weekend
CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP) — A Civil War veteran has been buried with his family in southwest Missouri in a ceremony that included re-enactors and the sounds of a cannon blast. The Joplin Globe reports that hundreds gathered Saturday for the funeral of Major Raphael Guido Rombauer. The ashes of the Union Civil War officer went unclaimed for more than a century after his 1912 death in Kirksville.
