Re: Lt. Maunsel Bennett
Don't know his cause of death, but will take a look at his widow's pension application next time I get up to Alexandria. That will almost surely have it listed. (Thanks for the heads-up, Monterey.) Another thing you may be interested in: Maunsel Bennett was not captured at Port Hudson. He slipped through Union lines before the surrender, and that's why he was available as commanding officer when the enlisted men were exchanged.
