4th Texas Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: James KruseRank: Unknown Company:

Kruse was captured early one morning while leaving the infantry on a 'hunch.' While captured, Kruse, who had a knack for impressing peers with simple card and magic tricks, ended up tricking the guards to let him blindfold them and sneak back to his own infantry. When he returned, he was rewarded with an 'old, musty sock' as a joke but his cleverness did not go unnoticed. The next day he was killed in combat with a bullet that traveled through his nose canal up to his brain.
