My Great-Grandfather was taken prisoner at the battle of Champion Hill and was exchanged in 1864. After a brief furlough home to Ashland, AL he returned to his regiment. He was killed during battle and buried in a common grave at the Old City Cemetery, Nashville TN. After the civil war his body was disintered and buried in the Confederate Circle at Mt. Olivet Cemetery next to others from his unit. His wife Drucilla Castleberry Pruet is buried in Ashland, AL. The government placed a marker at his grave in 2004.
