Thanks Dixie Girl and Cleburne Fan!

I've checked the OR's, "Googled" it, etc.....I even contacted the Park Ranger at Ft. Pillow, tried to find anything in "Battles and Leaders" series, looked it up in the book "River Run Red" (an excellent book about Ft. Pillow) and can't find anything.

My conclusions are:

A) It was a minor skirmish, not worthy of mention in any of my sources


B) Due to the passage of time (over 50 years) my Dad's memory is mistaken (he is even starting to question it himself, in regards to where the bullets came from), and those bullets were found at the Ft. Pillow battle sight.

I appreciate everyone's help!
