How do I get copies of the 18 cards in his file and copy of his Parole of Honor (No. 791, July of 1865).
On some of his papers and on his tombstone, he is referred to as Capt. On his tombstone, it says "Capt" and on the foot stone, it says "Capt Co B 1 Texas Arty". Is Capt just a nickname he went by as his rank is Private.
He is my grandfather so I have lots of documented information about his life except for his military service in the Confederate Army.
