  1. My ancestor's brother, William Hunt, was in the 61st/81st TN infantry.
    "...was in Christians-burg, Virginia when it received news of General Lee's surrender at Appomattox. Here Brigadier General Echols, who was in command of the Department, dissolved his forces, but the 61st, with others from Vaughn's Brigade, crossed the mountains into North Carolina to join General Joseph E. Johnston, reached a wing of his army at Raleigh, were ordered to Charlotte, where they met President Davis and served as his escort to Washington, Georgia, where he was captured, and the regiment disbanded."
