Corporal Theodore Kohn was wounded in the hand about the time the enemy were driven from their works. I happened to be near him at the time, and he held up his hand to me and said: "Look here Wille, what the "d-d Yankees have done to me." His language was so emphatic and earnest, that it made me feel like laughing, but I did not know how soon my turn might come. Corporal Kohn was by birth a Bavarian, coming South when about ten years old and making Orangeburg, South Carolina, his home; at maturity he was thoroughly Southern in sentiment and principle, and lost no time in responding to the first call to arms. He was in service for the four years, making a reliable and
trustworthy soldier. After the war he did a successful mercantile business in Orangeburg for many
years. He died in 1902.
