Alexander H Daniel - Private   
Listed in service records as "A.H. Daniel," Alex's surname is also spelled Daniels as well. He is the twin brother of John R. Daniel(s), a corporal in Company A, and served the 26th Tennessee from 1861 to 1863. Alex and John were at the Battle of Fort Donelson, taken prisoner at that engagement, and paroled in late 1862. They did not serve over the spring, and much of the summer, period, but returned to the unit in early to mid-August. The twins were at the Battle of Chickamauga in September, John being wounded while the unit engaged with the enemy. They followed Longstreet to Rome, Georgia, where John would pass away on 21 Oct 1863. After the death of his brother, Alexander helped dispose of the corpse then deserted the Confederate Army (25 Oct 1863). Alexander returned home to Meigs County, where he would live quietly for nearly a year, then subsequently enlist into the Union Army in November of 1864. Alexander finished his service with the 7th Tennessee Mounted Infantry (Union Army) and attained the rank of Sergeant during that time.
