    MY GG-Grandfather, Pvt. Amos Dorwin, was a member of the 19th Michigan Infantry at the Battle of Thompson’s Station on March 5, 1863. He was among the soldiers captured and sent to Libby prison in Richmond. This is an excellent article and has helped me understand the battle in much greater detail. Thank You!

    My great, great grandfather, (then) Sgt. John Hugh McDowell, of Col. John G Ballentine’s regiment, under N. B. Forrest captured 15 men, including Captain Brown of the 22nd Wisconsin, a Lieutenant, and 12 Federal soldiers at the brick house of Jack Fitzgerald.
