Comrade Malcolm McMullen, whose death occurred at his home near Bayview,
Hillsborough County FL, August 20, 1909, was a Georgian by birth, was 69 years old,
and at the time of his death was the oldest living McMullen in south Florida ..
of which family there is a large connection in Hillsborough county
He was a member of the same company as the writer of this article--Company H,
Ninth Georgia Volunteer Infantry, which was ordered to the seat of war in
Northern Virginia early in the spring of 1861 and participated in all of the
battles of Lee's army from bull run to Gettysburg, where we both were wounded,
captured by the Federals and imprisoned at Fort Delaware.
I being seriously wounded, was kept only about one month,
but Mr. McMullen's wound was slight, and he was held in prison until
the close of the war.
He was a quiet and good man, a faithful soldier and was liked by all of the company.
His kindness to me while in prison-- I being in a almost helpless condition,
he nursed me like a brother-- endeared him to me, and I loved him as a brother.
He leaves a wife and five children -- three girls and two boys.{Clifford} he
named for me, which I appreciate, for it was proof of his love.
It would have been a great satisfaction to me to have met him once more and felt again
the swelling of the heart when friend meet friend and hand clasps hand and the eyes speak
a message of love; but he has answered to the last roll call and is tenting tonight
with his comrades on the old camp ground. The autumn leaves are falling on his new-
made grave, and the violets of spring will bloom along the path that he has trod.
With the lines of the poet we leave him in the keeping of our great Commander.
"Now the laborer's task is o'er; Now the battle day is past; Now upon the farther shore
lands the voyager at last. Father, in Thy generous keeping, leave we now our comrade sleeping,
There the tears of Earth are dried; there the hidden things are clear; There the work of life
is tried by a juster Judge than here. Father, in Thy generous keeping
leave we now our comrade Sleeping
- H. Clifford -Company H -9th GA Infantry

The "midi" song playing is "Canon in D" by the German composer Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706). It was written about 1680. You may have heard it as the theme from the movies "Ordinary People", and "Father of the Bride". It is popular at weddings, and was played at Princess Diana's funeral.
