  Washington, District of Columbia

General Samuel Sprigg Carroll was from a well-connected Washington, D.C. family. He graduated from West Point in 1856. Like his older brother-in-law Gen. Charles Griffin from Ohio, and another brother-in-law Gen. John Marshall Brown of Maine, he fought in the eastern theatre during the whole war. Carroll started in the Shenandoah Campaign and fought at Cedar Mountain.

Later he fought at Fredericksburg, after which he was given command of a brigade in the 2nd Corps. Leading them he fought at Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Mine Run and Bristoe Station, the Wilderness (where he was wounded), and Spotsylvania (where he was wounded again a week later).

John Wesley Lansdale served in Captain Nally's company, formed in 1861 for the defense of the capital. His first cousin's husband William W. Maloney also apparently served in the District, but for which unit is unclear.
