Neil: I have been researching a Data Base of Confederate Dead for many years using newspaper listings, Regimental Histories, Service Records, Etc. The following Soldiers I have listed for Fort Pillow, Tennessee are from the Battle and from earlier in the war when it was a Confederate Fort and Camp. There were many deaths there and they are probably buried somewhere below the bluffs.
