This is from Sharpsburg veteran James C. Loggins‘ obituary [via GoogleBooks] in the Texas State Journal of Medicine of November 1921.

He enlisted very young, and was only 16 years old in Maryland in 1862. He was captured the following year at Gettysburg, but escaped from Fort Delaware in 1864 to return to duty. After the war he went to the medical school at Tulane in New Orleans, graduated in 1868, and practiced for about 50 years, most of that time in Ennis, TX.
