At the second battle of Bull Run he was in command on the right and forced Jackson's corps back against Gen. Longstreet's men. He was killed on the battleground of Chantilly, Va., Sept. 1, 1862. Gen. Kearny had, while reconnoitering, inadvertently penetrated the Confederate lines and was trying to escape when he was shot through the spine and instantly killed. His remains were sent by Lee under flag of truce to Gen. Hooker, and in City Park, Newark, N. J., the citizens of New Jersey erected a statue to his memory. Gen. Scott said of Kearny, "He was the bravest man I ever knew and the most perfect soldier."
