Regarding Major General Jesse Lee Reno.
Even though he is currently buried in Georgetown, that was not his initial resting place. After his death, his body was initially buried in Boston, his wife's hometown.
There appears to be an error in the text, as the Second Battle of Bull Run (Second Battle of Manassas) happened on August 28-30, 1862, so it is in conflict with the July 1862 date shown. Also, it's known that his promotion to Major General happened on August 20, 1862.
