BONES OF HEROES
WILL BE REMOVED
GENERAL NETTLETON'S EFFORT
ROUSES AVAR DEPARTMENT
Skeletons of American Soldiers Who
Served Under Taylor, Now Bleach
ing at Point Isabel to be Placed in
National Cemetery at Brownsville
. Washington, D. C., Feb. 3. The
fact" that the skeletons of a number
of soldiers'if General Taylor's army,
who died and were buried near Point
Isabel near the beginning- of the Mex
ican war in lS47r had'-never been re
moved, and are now exposed ta the
view by reason of the washing: away
of the embankment under which, they
were buried, has been called to the
attention of President Rotfsevelt,, by-
Gen. A. B. Nettleton, U S. A., rer
tired, who is now at Brownsville. It
Is learned that there were about 130
soldiers under Gen. Taylor who eith
er died of disease while encamped
at Point Isabel, or were- killed in
battle or skirmish near there, their
bodies having been interred under
some breastworks which had been
erected by the army. These bodies,
it seems, were never removed, and'
the report now received is to the effect
that the bones have been exposed
by the gradual washing away of the
embankment, being exposed to- sun
and rain, and that even vandal relic
hunters havo been carrying away the
bones, which they had dug or raked
out of the loose earth- It is not un
derstood just why these remains
were not removed to the National
Cemetery at Brownsville, as the war
department had contracted for the
removal and interment of the bodies
of all soldiers who had fallen jn bat
tle or died in that section surround
ing Brownsville, and their interment
in the National cemetery. These
bodies were undoubtedly accidentally
overlooked.
President Roosevelt at once re
ferred General Nettleton's letter to
the war department, and the matter
will be attended to as it should be.
Orders will probably tie issued for the
removal of the remains to the ceme
tery at Brownsville.
