From the Richmond Sentinel, 9/17/1864, p. 1

GEN’L MORGAN. - General Morgan’s remains reached this city yesterday morning, by the Danville train, and were escorted to the Capitol by the State Guard and Fire Brigade.

The body, wrapped in a handsome Confederate flag, laid in the House of Representatives till 1 o’clock P. M., and was strewn with flowers by the numberless ladies who filled(?) the Hall. At 1 o’clock it was transferred to a private vault in Hollywood, whither it was followed by a large turnout of the military, the City Council and other city authorities, the Kentucky Congressional delegation, and a large procession of citizens.

The remains of this distinguished cavalry chieftain will repose at Hollywood until such time as they can, with safety, be transferred to the soil of his native State, Kentucky.
