FREYBERT, ADAM, Private, Co. B, 1st Maryland Cavalry, aged 34 years. Compound comminuted fracture of the left parietal bone by a blow from a sabre. Brandy Station, Virginia, June 9th, 1863. Admitted to First Division Hospital, Annapolis, Maryland, June 21st. Returned to duty April 21st, 1864. On the expiration of his term of service, he re-enlisted in the 1st Regiment, 1st Army Corps, (Hancock's Corps.) in the spring of 1865. On July 18th, 1865, he was treated at Stanton Hospital, Washington, for catarrh, was furloughed, and then transferred to Douglas, and thence to Harewood Hospitals, and finally discharged on surgeon's certificate of disability, February 21st, 1866. From the hospital records it appears that he suffered little or no inconvenience from his head injury, and that he was probably an incorrigible malingerer.
