My great-grandfather's brother John German of 65th Georgia Infantry Regiment was captured at Ringgold Ga., after Battle of Missionary Ridge in Chattanooga, Tenn. He was sent to Rock Island Prison. He took the oath to join U.S. Army for Western Frontier but he was rejected because of his health. Anyway he was released in October 1864. Where did he go? Stay north of Ohio River or come to Fort Leavenworth with other galvanized yankees for yankee uniforms? I hope to obtain good information.
