|Bio and Links|
I am a retired Huntsville Alabama Police Officer. I have been a student of local history for many years. My main interests lie in Alabama Civil War Units. One of the saddest things about the Civil War was that so many young men left home and were never heard from again. Their families never knew how or where they died or where they were buried. Thanks to the work of many Findagrave contributors, I have reunited many of these brave men,if only in a virtual cemetery. These cemeteries are a constant work in progress and a tedious undertaking. If you have a relative that has not yet been included, please let me know and it would be my honor to add them. I welcome any and all info on any of my memorials and am always happy to transfer your kin folk. If you visit the memorial of any of these brave men, please honor them in any way you see fit. Whether or not you believe their cause was just, does not matter. What matters is that men from both sides fought and died protecting the only way of life they had ever known. "Alas! In how many Southern homes aching hearts waited through weary months for news of loved ones that never came until the suspense was replaced by the real certainty that the absent one had helped to swell the unknown dead of the Wheatfield, the Peach Orchard, or the Devil's Den of a Northern land."--J. Howard Wert. Sometimes I come home from work with a sore back or tired feet or maybe even a headache. Then I think of a 18 year old boy lying wounded in a dark field. He's hundreds of miles from home. He's thirsty,hungry and cold. He's crying for his Mama. Or I think of Robert and Sarah Milling, of Dallas County, who lost their five sons to the Confederate cause in the 20th Alabama Infantry. Suddenly, I don't feel so bad afterall.|

|John Simmons||Alabama units in Tennessee|
Hello, I currently live in middle Tennessee. I live within two miles of the site of Battle of Hoover' Gap just south east of Murfreesboro. There were Alabama units involved in the Tullahoma Campaign as well as the Battle of Stones River. I know that one of my ancestors was in the 45th Alabama Infantry and that unit was here but at the fight at Liberty Gap. I also noted since I have been here that the Eufaula Light Artillery was here as well. They were positioned to defend Hoover's Gap. If I find any marked graves for any Alabama soldiers I can send you information. There were many other Alabama units in the area during the Battle at Stones River and the Tullahoma Campaign.
I was born in Columbus,Georgia.
