It is interesting that Creed Hood is mentioned at the end of this story. He was my great grandfather and was also a prisoner of war. Having been captured on his way to Tebbs Bend, he was taken to Camp Douglas, IL, and remained there for nearly 24 months. He was later released in a prisoner exchange in North Carolina and walked home to Cane Valley, KY.He died in 1921 and is buried in the Cox cemetery on the James Keltner road. - Robert W Flowers
