My name is Alfred Farris. my grandfarher James Barton Farris joined the 7th Alabama regiment company H at age 16. He later joined the 10th Tenn. company H.
He fought in the battles of Franklin and Nashville, and was captured on Hood’s retreat and taken (i think) to Rock Island ill and was then moved to another prison where he survived smallpox. i would like more information about his war and prison record.
