Lt. Henry B. Dillard, 33rd Alabama Infantry

Henry B Dillard CDVMy great grandfather, Lt. Henry B Dillard was wounded and captured a few days after the Battle of Franklin. He was sent to Ft Delaware as a POW for some time before he was released in a prisoner swap. He kept a diary that he “captured” at Chickamauga and I am fortunate enough to have it in my possession. He corresponded with some residents of Franklin after the war and I have the original letters also. I have several of his documents and letters from that time.

    Mr. Dillard, My name is Jim Faust and I have just completed a regimental history of the 15th Alabama Infantry. I am researching to write a regimental history of the 33rd Alabama Infantry and would love to read Henry’s diary and letters. How may I read them?

    Thank You
