On this 1907 questionnaire, Henry W Miller, late Private in the 26th Alabama Infantry, related a small story of how he was cared for by a Federal soldier after he had been wounded at Turner’s Gap on 14 September 1862. He was then just 16 years old. He was sent home, disabled, after he was exchanged in May 1863.
