No. 2050. Class of 1865.

By the death of this officer, the Corps of Engineers and the Army, have lost an able engineer and an honorable and cultivated gentleman. At the time of his death, he held the rank of Captain in the Corps of Engineers.

During his fifteen years of service, Captain Brown was engaged in many important duties, among which may be mentioned the Survey of the Northern Lakes, the Defences of New Orleans, River and Harbor Works in Louisiana and Texas, the Defences of Delaware River, River and Harbor Improvements in Delaware, Southern New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania, and finally, the examination of the progress of the Jetties at the mouth of the Mississippi.

Members of the Class of 1865, will remember him as one of their most prominent and popular men, and will deeply regret his early death.
