Yes I think that is where they were and where Wm went but he enlisted onthe way. One thing, he wound up serving back in Arkansas and Little Rock. And yes Dug Gap is correct. I was just trying to draw on my memory banks and knew it was in Georgia. The letters are very detailed. William talks about how he struck out north posing as a "simple minded" man looking for a lost horse. He talks about carrying a bridle around and any time asked I guess he put on an act that allowed him to make it to the Union lines. Next time I am home I will look and let you know what regiment. I am pretty sure he had some relatives in there as well. Anyway, I hope to edit them someday as there is a world of interesting info in these letters. I can't even remember how many there were. It gets kind of confusing with all the relatives etc both north and south and how they write back and forth almost like no war is going on. Seems like they ask about relatives no matter what side they were on. I may try to scan them and take them with me on computer to work on while I am "off duty" over there. I plan to work on my thesis as well while there if time and duties allow. Won't be much else to do on my off time.
