.......additional info submitted by Wade Barr, his Great,great,grandson;
According to family tales he ran away from home and joined at 15 yrs. old. In the fall of 1863 his mother caught up with him and got his officers to discharge him because of his age. The story goes that on his 18th birthday he went to Savannah and signed up again and served another year until he got sick and was brought home and the war was over before he had gotten well enough to go back.

The "midi" song playing is "Canon in D" by the German composer Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706). It was written about 1680. You may have heard it as the theme from the movies "Ordinary People", and "Father of the Bride". It is popular at weddings, and was played at Princess Diana's funeral.
