Thanks to descendant and author Bill Guerrant for pointing me to Hugh Lindsay Guerrant of the 13th North Carolina and providing this photograph of him in his First Lieutenant’s uniform, from his collection.

Lieutenant Guerrant was apparently close enough to Brigadier General Samuel Garland at Fox’s Gap on South Mountain on 14 September to retrieve the pit from the peach the General was eating when he was shot there. And he later raised a tree from it back home. Some story!
