Thanks for the opportunity to post. I was wondering if someone with advanced knowlege of the civil war in ky could help me out
I have a framed portrait of a relative ( with colt at waist and reverse US BELT buckle) listed for auction on ebay under item 110062898574
the purpose of my post is the following:
in the accompanying obituary for the KY Union Soldier ( interesting that he was a union soldier since he was from todd county, the birthplace of jefferson davis) it states ( from 1928) that he was part of "the boys in blue who followed Grant Sherman and Buckner during the perilous days of '65.
i am not a civil war expert but a fellow emailed me to ask me how Elijah Wright ( the soldiers name) could have followed sherman grant and buckner since buckner was a Confederate General?
is it your opinion that the obituary ( i have the actual copy that appeared in the Todd County standard) is incorrect or could there have been another Buckner in KY in 1865?
