Re: General Sidney Johnston's Burial
This is quite a thread and it seems the amount of knowledge here is unbelievable. Here's a question that I can't seem to find the answer to concerning the death of ASJ. Did his body at ANYTIME immediately following his death fall into the hands of Union forces? I have the diary of a Union soldier who claims to have found the body of ASJ in a tent apparently immediately after his death. A union guard was placed over the body. It's understandable that in battle, things are not always as they seem but I would like to get clarification on this. Thanks!
