1864 Civil War Remembrance

For all those readers interested in Civil War remembrances, the following was found in a May, 1921, issue of The Fowlerville Review:

Tuesday, May 10, 1864, is yet fresh in the memory of Alfred H. Smith, as that was the day 57 years ago when he was taken prisoner in Virginia by the Rebs, being captured after a long chase and some hot fighting.  His cavalry horse finally gave out and he took to the woods on the mountains only to fall into the arms of three bushwackers who captured and disarmed him.
