Private, Co. G, 9th Tennessee Infantry, CSA

"At Shiloh Comrade Hilliard, being a fine specimen of physical manhood, was detailed as a member of the infirmary corp. He did his duty in that awful battle so well, so faithfully, as many could testify, that never after that battle was he required to carry a gun. Always at his post of duty, with grim and solemn old "litter" on his shoulder, always at the right place, and at the right time. He was with us at the beginning, then Perryville, Murfreesboro, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge, the hundred days battling from Dalton to Lovejoy, Franklin--oh, that awful November coming! Nashville, the hasty retreat to Corinth, Miss. the long journey to North Carolina, there at Greensboro he laid the old worn litter down. So nobly had he carried it, even to the end." (Letter from R. J. Dew, Trenton, TN dated Apr. 25,1905 and published in the Martin Mail, Martin, TN)
