Thomas Sloper - Private   
Thomas was a private in the 10th Tennessee Infantry (Confederate) when he was captured at Fort Donelson and sent to Camp Douglas in Illinois. The 23rd Illinois made him an offer he couldn't refuse, so he enlisted and served in the 23rd for the duration of the war.
I am searching for a family connection with this 'galvanized Yankee' who had the same name as me!
