They Were Hung?--Civil War.

All these man were under the sentence to be hung or were hung. These men were of the Union and Confederate Army’s, and civilians. I have just listed the names as some of the information is very long, you may see a name more thing once this could not be helped, but that will tell you there may be a lot of information on that name? Some family’s will not like the idea of a family member being hung, but you have to remember this was war and you should be proud that he give his life in what he believed in, no matter what side he was on.

New- January 23, 2010.

Mr. F. M. Elliott, of South Carolina give this new info on his Grate-Grate Grandfather.

My great- great Grandfather John Francis Abraham Elliott was a Methodist Preacher in the Darlington District of South Carolina. He entered the war with 2 of his sons. One son, Thomas Wayne Elliott was killed in the battle of Atlanta. I may have a date of birth and date of death but that’s about all we have on him. We always assumed that he was shot in battle. This is interesting to learn of his possible hanging. His father Captain J. F. A. Elliott also died during the war from illness on Morris Island SC. I have a good amount of info on him but the info on Thomas was he had been short.

Error--I apologize for the confusion. Thomas wasn't actually Killed in action, he married and moved west after the civil war. His brother Dargan Pinkney Elliott was the one that was killed in the battle of Atlanta.
