*Note: Lieutenant Colonel Kimball of the 9th New York Infantry was killed at Suffolk by Brigadier General Michael Corcoran. Corcoran was inspecting his lines at 3 in the morning during a threatened Confederate attack when he was accosted by Kimball, who demanded the countersign. The two got into a violent confrontation which ended when Kimball advanced on Corcoran with his sword and “an impolite statement” and Corcoran shot him in the neck. A court of inquiry found that Kimball had not been on duty or at a picket post, had used abusive language and threatened the general, and may have been drunk. It was ruled that Corcoran acted in self defense.
