Re: Captain at Camp Moore April 1863

I have seen it as Suzan Robertson, is that incorrect? She was supposed to be related to a signer of the Declaration of Independence but I haven't researched her yet to find out. Actually, his full name was Felix DuMontiel de la Greze but he generally went by Felix Dumonteil. Also, I believe he was in charge of Camp Moore as a major. He tried to re-enlist in the French army during the Franco-Prussian War but they refused him as they considered him a mercenary for fighting in the United States. That was truly disheartening as France surely could have used every experienced man in that war.
