Cleburne and other Confederate Generals are laid out on Carnton porch, video

The next day after the battle, December 1st, Patrick Cleburne, and three other Confederate Generals were brought to Carnton and laid out on the back porch.  Jacobson eloquently tells the story.  What about his Kepi?  His pistol?

The bodies of Confederate Generals Cleburne, Adams, Strahl and Granbury were laid out right on this porch on the morning of December 1st, 1864.

This is the authentic Kepi worn by Cleburne the day he was killed.
