    7. Associated Press Accounts.” Philadelphia Inquirer. June 20, 1864, p. 1 col. 4-5: “Colonel TANNATT, of the First Massachusetts Heavy Artillery, was wounded, and Major HAMILTON, One-hundred-and-tenth Pennsylvania, killed.”  However, Hamilton was not killed, probably only wounded, due to his presence commanding the regiment later in the Siege.  He was presumably wounded at some point in June, probably during the Second Battle of Petersburg due to the presence of this newspaper mention, or was away from the regiment, because the commander of the 110th Pennsylvania on June 30, 1864 was Captain William Stewart.  More research is necessary.
