Man, do you know how to make a man's day or what?!?!
The info you posted is simply wonderful, as, based on other info I have, it cements the fact that this great historian is, in actuality, the same man as Pvt. Horatio B. Cushman of the Camel Regiment -- the 43rd MS Infantry!
Thank you so very much for taking the time to find this data for me.
I am especially grateful for the photo of Cushman, as seeing our Patriot ancestors eye-to-eye helps us to view them as real, flesh-and-blood people.
Thanks, again, Mitch, for everything!!!
Now, if you could just locate the diary of my grandfather, Capt. Henry James Gully of the 43rd MS......! -- Jim Huffman, 43rd MS Infantry Vols, CSA
