    Notes 
    • Osmund Latrobe studied law and passed the bar; joined the Confederate Army in the Civil War, first in a subordinate position on the staff of General James Longstreet; promoted to Ass't Adjutant General and later to Chief of Staff with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. General Moxley Sorrel and Osmun Latrobe both served on the staff of General Longstreet, and Longstreet wrote of Osmun as his good friend. Osmun Latrobe replaced General Sorrel when the latter was promoted. In one battle at the same time both had their horses killed and were seen carrying their saddles back to camp. At the Battle of Fredericksburg, Latrobe directed artillery fire from Marye's Heights against the attacking Union soldiers. Afterwards, he rode over the battlefield and wrote in his diary that he had, "enjoyed the sight of hundreds of dead Yankees. Saw much of the work I had done in the way of severed limbs, decapitated bodies, and mutilated remains of all kinds, doing my soul good. Would that the whole northern army was such and I had my hand in it."

      He assisted his father in conduct of the Winans railroad case against the Russian government in St. Petersburg. He was prominent in the social life of Baltimore and New York.
