Letter: Civil War Veteran for Veterans List

Timothy England writes:
My name is Timothy England, and I am a great lover of the First Generation of Englands that lived in your great state for so many yrs. Sir, the reason I am writing to you is because I do not know if my civil war ancestor has been covered as a subject in your Civil War Vets, if he has well, then I do apologize for a repeat. I am just so very proud and honored to post my American Civil War vet.

Unfortunately, at the moment I do not have any photos of the unit that he served with nor a photo of him. Perhaps someone might have one.

This is only information that I have gathered from word of mouth and by research through varies genealogy web sites. Sergeant Nathaniel Thomas England, my 3rd great-grandfather on my father's mother side of the family. Nathaniel England died on October 25, 1869 and is buried in the Old Caylor Cemetery which is located in Metcalfe County, Kentucky.

Nathaniel England served in the American Civil War, which he fought for the North, his unit was Company "K", 37th Kentucky Mounted Infantry who served under Captain Joseph J. Borrel. According to reports, the 37th was part of the group that pursued John Hunt Morgan and his Rebel Raiders as the united protected the south central part of Kentucky. England was a specialist for the Union Army of his outfit, what exactly the specialist is, is unknown at this time. For reasons why he re-enlisted after he was released from active duty is unknown. While in service he received the Distinguished Service Medal.

Anyway Mr. Waggener, I just wanted to post him on your website, which I do hope you do not mind. As to whether he is considered a Yankee or a Reb, I look it at it from a different point of view, which is he fought for his country when a great peril had besiege this country, a war that should have never happened in my own belief. He served his country the best way he knew how, to me that is what really matters. Thank you sir for allowing me to contact you.

God Bless. --Timothy England, from Franklin, Tennessee
