Re: 28th Ala Infantry, Co. C
Unless a soldier died as a prisoner of war, burial information is almost completely lacking. You must already have the soldier's military service file, which includes records filed with probate court in Blount County by his widow. He's probably among the 250 or so Confederate soldiers buried at Gainesville. According to popular tradition, all of these men had been wounded at Shiloh and died in the Female Academy Hospital. However, the hospital remained in use for quite some time after that battle, and soldiers suffering from various illnesses far outnumbered those who had been wounded in battle. This soldier probably became ill during the retreat from Corinth to Tupelo, and was sent to Gainesville for treatment in early June.
