Military Monday: Lieutenant Colonel DeMoss Captured During Atlanta Campaign

The 24 May 1864 issue of the Memphis Daily Appeal reported on the Atlanta Campaign. The 10th Regiment Tennessee Cavalry was involved in this campaign. My 3rd-great-grandfather Joseph Tarkington and my 3rd-great-grandfather's brother John G. Gatlin were privates in the 10th Regiment, Tennessee Cavalry, Company D, although they were not present during the Atlanta Campaign. Lieutenant Colonel DeMoss, whose capture was reported in the article below, was a cousin of mine.
