Company B
David DeLafayette Franklin - Private   
While a prisoner-of-war at Rock Island, he enlisted, October 14, 1864, in Company B, 3rd United States Volunteer Infantry, and served in the Frontier Service of the Northwestern Frontier.

The United States Volunteer Infantry Regiments were made up of former Confederate soldiers who, while prisoners of war, were given the opportunity to leave POW camps in the event they would serve in the United States Army. There was a very difficult process in making this transition from Confederate POW to the ranks of the Union army as a 'Galvanized Yankee.'

David was honorably discharged from Federal service in November, 1865. Thus, David Franklin had the very unusual destinction of serving in both the Confederate and Union Armies during the Civil War, as a 'Galvanized Yankee'. One of only 6,000 Americans to do so.
