Ole,

 Actually my mother indicated although he was very active in the GAR he did not talk much about his war experiences except with another neighbor who was an Andersonville survivor, and other vets.  He had to fight with surgons three times to keep them from amputating his leg. My mother could recall that it would open and seep blood and bone chips for the rest of his life.   He did receive a pension for his injury, and was a cooper and farmer untill his death.
