I find no photos of these men, chances of any are rather remote there are any. Of any repositiory that would hold any would be the U. S. Army Military History Institute, Carlisle Barracks, Pa., they do not hold any of men of the 20th Alabama.
It seems we have two families represented here.

I do not find a record for him in the roster of the 28th. I believe the above citation to be in error and that this is George W. of the 20th.
