Name: Andrew Nelson HopeRank: Private Company: A
ANDREW NELSON HOPE - Born August of 1841 to Hale Hardin Hope and Nancy Matilda Goddard. He and his brother (Gabriel) David Lawson Hope fought in the 2nd Tennessee together. The only story that was passed down from his time in the service - During the Battle of Rogersville, where most men of the unit were taken POW, Andrew avoided capture by riding his horse across Big Creek. During his bold escape, Rebels noticed Andrew and saw him as an easy target. They shot at him from across the creek, with one of the shots striking him in the left breast. However Andrew did not die, as a plug of Brown's Mule Chewing Tobacco saved his life when the bullet hit that instead of himself. 1 of only 240 men to escape that day. There was no mention of his service after that at all other than he was listed as 'Deserted' on September 30, 1864 - a few short months after the death of his brother in Augusta, Georgia. Andrew Hope died in November of 1911 and was buried in the Forest Hills Cemetery. Up until February 14, 2017, he did not have a tombstone. Now he has a very nice, marble standing rock, showing his name, rank, and unit.

Name: Gabriel David Lawson HopeRank: Private Company: A
David was the first out of 3 Hope boys from his family to fight. He was part of the 2nd Regiment, Tennessee Infantry - Company A, along with his brother Andrew Nelson Hope.

David, like many of the 2nd Tennessee men, (but ironically not his brother Andrew) was captured on November 6, 1863 in Rogersville, Hawkins, Tennessee. From there David was taken to the notorious Belle Isle Prison and was held at that establishment from mid-November 1863 to late February 1864. After that, he was going to be transferred to the infamous Andersonville Prison, (A place where A LOT of these 2nd Tennessee men would perish) but he would never even see the gates. David was taken as a sick POW in Augusta, GA in March 1864, and died March 10, 1864 when he was 22. He left behind a 1 yr old son and a young wife. The name Gabriel is inferred from the 1850 Hope family census, this was the only time where he was called Gabriel. Most times he is called David or D.L. Hope. This is a very small bio of him, email me if you are interested and I can give A LOT more detail.

Name: John M. LooperRank: Private Company: D
John Looper enlisted on 20 May 1862, and enrolled on 10 July 1862 at Huntsville for a three-year term in the U.S. Army, 2nd Tennessee Infantry. After a number of engagements, including the occupation of Cumberland Gap in the summer and autumn 1862; the Battle of Stones River, 2-3 Jan. 1863; Buffington Island and Salineville, 19 and 26 July 1863 (capture of Morgan's raiders); and the Battle of Blue Springs 10 Oct. 1863, Looper was captured with most of his regiment at the Battle of Rogersville, Tenn., on 6 Nov. 1863. He was imprisoned at Richmond's Belle's Isle later that month, spent a hard winter on open ground without fires and only one ragged blanket to sleep on, and was sent to Andersonville Prison in Georgia on 18 February 1864. We know little of his experiences there, except that his brother Emerson, who had enlisted with him, died there of dysentery on 19 June 1864, and that family tradition says he had to eat rats to survive and that his bones were sticking through his skin. John was paroled to Charleston, S.C., on 10 Dec. 1864, and exchanged at Annapolis, Md., on 23 Feb. 1865. After his exchange he went via Baltimore and Cincinnati to Nicholasville, Ky., and then walked part of the way to Somerset, Ky., not making more than 4 miles some days because of weakness. He did not serve again, and was discharged on 19 June 1865 at Knoxville, Tenn.

If he hadn't survived, I wouldn't have been born!
