Re: General Sidney Johnston's Burial
Mr. Upton One should probably conclude that WPJ did get to Corinth after the escort had left with his father's corpse for new Orleans (a seven hour run by car today). He probably arrived on the 10th? He missed the train? He seems not to be at that funeral!! On April 17th 1862 his sick leave was extended by Dr. Yardell ASJ's doctor! See William Preston Johnston A Transitional Figure of the Confederacy by Shaw page 72. On this day he, WPJ, took possession of ASJ's Shiloh articles; I hope to post this list soon?
