, June 9, 1864. Thomas F. Folks
, of Jackson
's Headquarters' scouts, Twenty-eighth Mississippi Regiment, from Warren county, Mississippi
, died of his wounds in great peace to-day.
He was of fine form and handsome face with beautiful black hair and flowing beard.
He talked so calmly of death and so tenderly of his mother.
All was well with the noble young man. How I sympathized with his brother when he leaned so fondly over the dying form and caressed him as if he were a child, saying so pathetically and touchingly: “Tom, you are dying; speak to me, boy, poor fellow!”
June 10. T. M. Holland
, Company D, Fifty-fourth Tennessee-home Randolph, Tipton county, Tennessee
—was resigned to the will of God, but from the nature of his wound could say but little, but declared himself ready and willing to go.
June 11. Lieutenant Rankin
, Twenty-ninth Mississippi, when wounded was placed in my charge, and I carried him to the Medical College Hospital.
