I am a descendant of William Lish (sometimes found as Leish), who was a private with the 28th Kentucky Infantry when they fought at the Battle of Franklin, Tennessee. He was wounded during the battle and spent the next several months a southern Indiana hospital. When returned to service, he was promoted to sergeant.
I would be very interested in corresponding with you about his service at the Battle of Franklin and would be more than willing to share all the information that I have about him, including his service records.
