|Death: ||Sep. 20, 1863|
Martin Hasting shows as 17 years old in the 1860 census of Blount County, Al. He was killed in the battle of Chickamauga which was September 19th and 20th of 1863. Which means he was at least 19 years old. He was part of the Army of Tennessee, led by Braxton Bragg. I believe he was in Law's Brigade. The troops on the Confederate side were 65,000 strong, they suffered 18,454 casualties and losses, 2,312 killed, 14,674 and wounded and 1,468 captured/missing. According to my research. The Union side after winning left the bodies Union & Confederate there on the ground to head back North quickly. He was from the Liberty community in Blount County Al.
His father Charles Henry Graves also died in September or October of 1863 while serving in Mobile, AL in the Civil War.
His mother was Mary Ann Allison Graves born circa 1820 in Franklin,Georgia.
He never married.
He would have been my Great Great Uncle.
