Larry:

My G.G. Grandfather, Samuel Strader, was a private in Co. C, 2nd Regiment of the Kentucky Cavalry. He was in the Battle of Lookout Mountain and was with Sherman on his march to the sea. He was captured by the Confederate forces and spent six months in Andersonville Prison. After the Civil War, he was a surveyer for the Union Pacific when it was building the transcontinental railroad from Omaha to Salt Lake City. He was an active menber of the G.A.R. in Sioux City Iowa. He died in 1933 at age 89.
