I am looking for information about the 4 Firefighters killed while serving on patrol on the Lower Potomac River in April 1865. They were serving in the Quartermaster Corps on board the Black Diamond, doing picket duty hoping to catch John Wilkes Booth. They were given military burials in the National Cemetery in Alexandria. Do you have photographs of them? The article says US Steam Engine House, so they were NOT Alexandria fire fighters? [Description has been truncated. The full description might be available when requesting only information about this request.]
