...
Newman, turning to his men cried, "Now gentlemen, over with you" and with banner in one hand and sword in the other he dashed into battle.The effort was successful, with the 31st Regiment making two of the most brilliant charges of the entire campaign and its flag the first to reach the rebels' works, but Newman suffered a severe grape shot wound in his left foot. [see: 31st Regiment New York Volunteers Civil War Newspapers, New York State Military Museum and Veterans Research Center.]
...
Newman was buried with military honors in our Synagogue's first cemetery "Union Field" in Cypress Hills.
