I'd like to talk with my Great-Great Grandfather, Henry V. Flowers.

I'd like to know what his reasons for joining the 6th TN Cav. (Union) under Col. Fielding Hurst were? Did he join for patriotic reasons? Was it for the "spoils of war"? Was he "shamed" into joining?

I'd like know the extent of his participation in some "atrocities", as it were, committed by the 6th.

I'd also wonder how, after the war, Veterans of both sides treated each other in McNairy County, TN (the "Hurst Nation").
