    At the battle of Antietam, George (his brother) was missing and presumed killed. No body was ever identified as his.

He was captured by the Confederates and taken to Libbey Prison in Richmond. He was very sick and since he was so young, the Rebels allowed him to go home, if he promised not to enlist again.
    I have the pass that his Father used to get through the lines to Richmond to meet him and take him home. He was sick at home for about two years and they never removed the minnie ball from his neck. The parents allowed him and his fiancé to marry so that she could care for him.
