John David Hoptak, a Park Ranger at the Antietam National Battlefield, shares a recent encounter with the printed program used to arrange the funeral and procession for General James Nagle.  He writes:

Before the morning program, I was approached by an older man, a native of Pottsville, who had been in the antiques business for years. He had with him a photocopy of one of his Civil War documents, thinking that both Tom and I would be interested. He was absolutely correct. What he had was a copy of the Funeral Arrangements for General James Nagle, of interest to me, certainly, but also a great little piece of history.

He goes on to share the contents of the copy and some photos of the General and others.
