This Day in Georgia Civil War History

May 21, 1862

John Tyler Grandson Killed in Battle

The Southern Confederacy of Atlanta reprinted an item from a Virginia newspaper on the death of a soldier at Williamsburg, none other than the grandson of former President John Tyler. The “young hero” was only fourteen years old!
