"... We had sick with us, for whom we cared, but with such rough manner that they thought of home by a tenderness which was lacking; but, stop where we would, strong men and earnest-eyed women sought out the sick, pressing dainties upon them, till our good surgeon had to interfere to prevent any illustrations of being killed with kindness. What loving hearts could devise or loving skill prepare, was furnished with an accompanying tenderness that brought home vividly before our almost despairing, ay, dying comrades. Refined, delicate women would sit down in the dirty cars, take the heads of poor fellows on their laps, and tenderly bathe their brows and wash hands and feet that had long been guiltless of water. Like angels, they hovered over these wrecks of human strength, and, like angels, wept not, lest the tears welling up from overcharged hearts should hinder them in the discharge of their loving, but hurried duties. At Cleveland we left Lieutenant Reed, Charley French (D), and others. I fear they will return to Berkshire only as corpses."  Levi Campbell died Sept 5, 1863 in Cleveland, Ohio from illness, Pvt Co E 49th Infantry Regiment Massachusetts.
