Four brothers at Arlington National Cemetery

4 brothersBand of Brothers is often used beyond the famous World War II unit. But for one grave marker at Arlington National Cemetery, it’s true.

The four McCullough brothers are buried together in the back of the cemetery. All served in the Pennsylvania One Hundredth — the Round Head Regiment — during the Civil War. Two died during the war.

The unit formed Aug. 27, 1861. Jacob E. McCullough joined Aug. 31 and was killed at Cold Harbor on June 2, 1864. John L. McCullough mustered in Aug. 29, 1862, was wounded July 30, 1864 and discharged May 21, 1865, two months before the One Hundredth disbanded. He died in 1869.

Nathaniel N. McCullough enlisted Aug. 31, 1864, wounded on June 2, 1864 and discharged Jan. 8, 1865. He died in 1908. Joseph E. McCullough entered March 31, 1864, wounded accidentally June 26, 1864 and died July 19, 1864.
