John T Halbert

Is this soldier in anyones family?

One-armed fighting men were scattered throughout Confederate Forces. John T Halbert of Lincoln County, Tennessee, lost a hand at a cotton gin when he was young. So he was rejected when he offered his services to the Eight Tennessee Regiment. Six months later, with the manpower pinch already being felt in the South, one-handed Halbert was accepted into the Forty-first Tennessee and fought with his regiment throughout the war.

From the book "Civil War Curiosities" by Webb Garriston
