apparently many Confederates were listed as "casualties" when they were not, yet the Union suffered over 10 casualties to every 1 of the Confederacy. Perhaps it should be 15-to-1. My g-grand uncle Wiley Wood Foster, in Darnell's Rangers, as well as his brother, were listed as dead from the first battle they were in, the Battle of Chicamauga, yet they both survived the war. The records still show them killed at Chicamauga.
I always wondered about whether the Goodrums were in the war, and now I know. Thank you, Dianna. I think the tin-type, which is very damaged, is of Reuben Goodrum.
Do you know of any information on the Davises? I still have something about Tallahassee Florida in my memory, so perhaps it was with the Davises, or, with the Goodrums during the Civil War, which took them to Florida.
