For some time I have wondered what happened at the war's end,
to William Henry Tatum and my Great Grand Father John C Tatum.
Brothers who were members of the same outfit / First Company Richmond Howitzers.
Look at the dates of their Parole / Pardons --
So what happened ? Why would two brothers who had grown up under the same roof and served in the same outfit during the war be split apart at the end ?
Well one thing I've started doing is re-reading books in my collection, and on page 44 of The Richmond Howitzers, by Lee Wallace Jr I found the answer.
I'm fortunate to have the documentation available to solve the mystery.
