My great grandfather enlisted in the Confederate Army in Monroe County AL on May 2, 1864, at age 18. He was a prisoner of war at Sea Island MS. He was paroled on May 6, 1865, in a prisoner exchange in Vicksburg MS. He walked all the way home (approximately 270 miles) from Vicksburg MS to Jones Mill AL (now Frisco City AL).
