Civil War Soldiers - Welsh

Welsh, Thomas, brigadier-general, U.S. Army, was born in Pennsylvania, but lived for a number of years in Ohio and then returned to his native state, residing at Columbia, Pa. He served during the war with Mexico, and for gallant conduct in the battle of Buena Vista was promoted to a lieutenancy. At the commencement of the Civil war he entered the service as lieutenant-colonel of the 45th Pa. infantry, was subsequently promoted to the colonelcy of the regiment, and during 1863 was made a brigadier-general of volunteers. Gen. Welsh died at Cincinnati, Ohio, Aug. 14, 1863, of congestive fever acquired during the campaign in Mississippi.
