1817. Burr, b. Oct. 26, 1829. Frank Leslie's illustrated paper, of April 8'
1871, gives the following account of Burr, accompanied with an excellent likeness:

"THE LATE COL. BURR PORTER.

"On the mournfully long list of soldiers slain while fighting for the glory and
honor of France, there is the name of an American, a soldier of taste, and it might
also be said bj' profession, whose memorj" is very dear to a circle as large and influ-
ential as ever greeted a genial gentleman.

"During the retreat of the intrepid Bourbaki, toward the Swiss frontier. Col.
Burr Porter, of Newark, N. J., who was serving as a staff officer, was shot in the
breast while leading his command in a skirmish with the Prussians, shouting, but
a few moments before being struck, while his sword described a circle over his
head: 'I will show you how we fight in America!' His body was removed to the
residence of the cure of the village, and, after being viewed by his brother officers,
was interred with all the impressive ceremonies of the French army.

"Col. Porter was a son of the Rev. Burr Baldwin, formerly Principal of the
old Newark Academy, and when four years of age, was adopted b}' his uncle,
P. H. Porter. Esq., with wliom he always lived. He pursued his scholastic educa-
tion at Rutger's College, graduating in 1849. with the highest honors.

"During the Crimean war, he went to Turkej' and was attached to Omar
Pasha's Staff, and subsequently was made a "Bashaw," or Colonel of a regiment of
Arabs. Here his braver}^ and natural military tact were put to severe tests. His
command was an important one, and its duties developed the fine soldierly qualities
of his nature. The best evidence of the high appreciatioa in which he was held
b}' Omar Pasha, were the brilliant decorations conferred upon him, which literally
covered his breast. After leaving Turkey, he spent several years in Paris and

Vienna, studying military engineering. Returning to America, lac resumed the
legal profession till the outbreak of the civil war, when he became attached to
Maj. Gen. Fremont's Staff, and served with him in Virginia until after the battle of
Cross Keys. Upon the relief of Gen. Fremont, Col. Porter went to Massachusetts,
where he had intimate personal relations with Gov. Andrew, who offered him his
choice of ten regiments then forming at Readville, under the call of 1862. Accept-
ing the Fortieth, he served with credit, and subsequently was transferred to the
Third Massachusetts Cavalry, in which he remained until the close of the war.

' ' Little can here be added to the testimony of the daily press, in praise of his
important services, his rare intelligence, his genial disposition, and his elevated
literary tastes. He was in very truth a representative American, progressive and
liberal in his opinions, steadfast as a friend, and sensitive to a high degree. His
writings were always seasonable in subject, and attractive in style, exhibiting a
thoroughness of study, contideuce of expression, and clearness of description.

"His affection for the French amounted to an enthusiasm, which disasters only
increased, while he frequently expressed his expectations of the heroic fate that
deprived France of a soldier as honest, and the world of a man as pure as ever
