Don Furnish said: I need to find more info. abt my Great Uncle, Garrett Furnish, from Gallatin Co.,Ky. who was a political prisoner, imprisoned under the orders of General Sherman. . Sherman was relieved of duty in Ky. and was sent to Illinois for an attitude adjustment shortly after that. Sherman had abt 30-40 political prisoners arrested in Gallatin Co., Ky. and that got him into hot water with DC. . Garrett Furnish was the son of Capt. James Furnish, who enlisted at the age of 17 in Augusta Co.,Va. and served on the frontier in Ky. in the first campaigns of the 1770's and continued to serve in the 1812 war, with Gen. Harrison and beyond. James was my 4th GGrandfather. Garrett and my 3rd GGrandfather, Jacob, were brothers. There were members of my family serving on both sides in the Revolutionary War and again in the Civil War. Would appreciate any leads.

Subject: Re: Camp Chase Memorial Service report Westside Messenger June 15, 1998 Vol. XXV, No. 4 Page 1 Camp Chase Memorial Service The 104th annual Camp Chase Memorial Service was held June 7 at Camp Chase Cemetery, where 2,200 Confederate soldiers are buried. Mark Diemer, pastor of St. Timothy Lutheran Church, led the invocation and benediction; Stanton Prior provided the welcome address; Joe Briggs Jr. played "Taps;" the crowd gathered for the event sang "Dixie" and the "National Anthem;" and the 17th Mississippi, Company D, Army of Northern Virginia re-enactment group fired a musket salute in honor of the soldiers buried in the cemetery. Pvt. Lawrence Marple read a passage from Romans 8:18. The Bible in which he was reading from belonged to a Confederate soldier buried in Camp Chase Cemetery. Marple purchased the Bible at an antique sale. Submitted by John Cramer more Camp Chase Confederate Cemetery 103rd memorial service The Columbus Dispatch June 2, 1998 page 2C said: Sunday service honors Confederate soldiers Joe Briggs Jr., a descendant of the pioneer family whose name is on a road, a high school and a community in western Franklin County, will once again sound taps Sunday at the 103rd memorial service at Camp Chase Confederate Cemetery. Briggs, 68, first took up the bugle while a student at Columbia Military Academy in Tennessee. He resumed his duties with the horn at the cemetery's 100th anniversary service in 1995. The cemetery, 2900 Sullivant Ave, is the final resting place for 2,060 sons of the South who died while prisoners of war. It is the last remaining section of a Union Army camp set up for the Civil War. This year's public ceremony, sponsored by the Hilltop Historical Society, will begin at 3 p.m. Hilltop resident Ed Beeman, this year's featured speaker, will discuss life at the camp and its historical importance. Beeman said his interest in the camp stems in part from the fact that his home in Westgate is on former camp ground. Out of deference to those buried at Camp Chase, Briggs said he will face south as he sounds the mournful tribute that will end the ceremony. Other Civil War Links:
