These men are an unidentified Lieutenant and five of the seven Olivers who served in Company D of the First Texas Infantry. None, unfortunately, are William Alexander Thompson Oliver.

William was Sergeant in Company D when he was wounded and captured at Sharpsburg in September 1862. He was captured again, at Gettysburg in July 1863 when he was left behind to tend the wounded. He was a prisoner until December 1863 with no further military record, but survived the war to become a prosperous farmer in Etowah County, AL.
