Pvt. John Carpenter, 120th Indiana, Company K.
We have copies of his service record and pension paperwork. He was present at the battle of Franklin. The only funny notation was in March and April of ’65; “Stoppage of pay for one bayonet and one waist belt.” He must have lost them marching through North Carolina. He was charged $2.40 for the loss.
