Henry Marion Whitmire - Corporal   
Looking for more information about my GreatGrandfather, Henry Marion Whitmire. He entered the Confederate Army as a Pvt and left as a Cpl. I have information about the pardon awarded him by President Jackson. In one of the battles he was wounded and detained at a field hospital. Since no one knew where he was, he was listed as AWOL. My grandfather remembers the scars from his woulds, but said his father did not talk about the war much as many vets still today. I know there are records for this glitch in his service. I wish I knew where I could get them today. In the late 1960's, I obtained the records for a high school project and gave them to my grandfather. He was so proud. I do not know where those records are today and would like to acquire them for my family. Any help would be wonderful. I am collecting this information for my grandchildren so their contribution will be remembered for years to come. Thanks in advance for contributions of information to this family project.
