Dennis:

Never heard of him until a dear lady on the chat room, related some of the story. He was a young man with family and social ties to the Lees of Virginia. He and (I think) two others dressed as Union Cavalry hung around camp for a day or two. When they left, he was recognized by a Union lieutenant with whom he'd served before the war.

They were a few miles out when they were captured and returned. Donning the uniform of an enemy is always a hanging offense. So they were.

Next time I run across the lady, I'll again ask her where her article was published. It was either in Blue & Grey or North and South a year or two ago. Or you can hang around Shotgun's Chat Room. He handle is Teej.
