I remember my grandmother telling me he left in a weak state and had no shoes when he was released and it was winter. He had to wrap his feet in rags and had to walk all the way home to South Carolina and it took him many months. I really don't know who to pass this information on so thought here would be a good place to start. I know my family donated the negative # LC-b8184-10640 to the Library of Congress Hirst Millhollen. This is on the back of our old picture too. I believe the one I have is some sort of copy of the original. Anyways, I hope this information can be useful to someone. I see lots of records of soldiers but no where I can share this information so maybe someone who knows how can pass it along. Johnspainting@hotmail.com if anyone would like to get in touch.
