Here are Richmond Oliver “Rich” Bennett and some of his large family more than 30 years after he was wounded in the finger at Sharpsburg in September 1862. He was a Corporal in Company M of the First Texas Infantry. He was wounded again and captured at Gettysburg in July 1863, and captured near Richmond, VA in October 1864. He finally went home to Trinity County, Texas in March 1865.
