Phillip McIntyre - Private   
Phillip Mclntyre (or Philip McIntire) was an ardent unionist. He was drafted into Confederate service on August 7, 1863.
According to the records he was 'Examined and recommended for discharge at Empire Hospital, Atlanta, Ga., because of 'debility dependent on original want of physical stamina,' October 27, 1863.' The 'roll for September-December 1863, shows him absent, sick in hospital.'

McIntire is mentioned in the book 'Secret Yankees, The Union Circle in Confederate Atlanta,' by Thomas G. Dyer. Page 45: 'McIntire, who ran a woodlot for Atlanta financier Richard Peters, told [his friend Joab] Jenkins that he would die rather than fight against the Union.'

On page 82 he declares 'I am too good a Union man to go into the rebel army.'

His ultimate fate is described on page 147: 'Philip McIntire, stock tender for Richard Peters, was arrested after midnight one evening during the fall of 1863 by E. T. Hunnicutt, the deputy provost marshal, and taken to Decatur to be put into service. 'Surrounded by guards and bayonets,' McIntire took an oath to the Confederacy but somehow succeeded in avoiding service, perhaps using a medical excuse procured for him by Peters—a tactic he would use when arrested once again in early 1864. When the pressure increased, McIntire fled the city altogether and sneaked through the Confederate lines, making it safely to Nashville.'

After the war he filed a successful claim with the Southern Claims Commission and opened a butcher shop in Atlanta.

Samuel Warren Patten - Private   
I know S.W Patten, my great,great grandfather died a pow at Camp Chase, Ohio Sept 20, 1864 just 2 months before a massive 10,000 man prisoner exchange in Nov. 1864. I'm trying to find out exactly where he was taken prioner and the cause of his death. I belive it was at Fort Donalson TN 2/16/62 but this is just an assumption I have from reading the history of Camp Chase. If there is any info out there I would like to know more but do not have the internet savvey nor the patience necessary to do the required searching.
