Military Personnel
    (December 1, 1844-July 1, 1862)
    Born in Georgia
    Served under General John B. Magruder as a Private in Company C, 2nd Louisiana Infantry, CSA during the American Civil War (1861-65)
    Participated in the Battle of Malvern Hill (1862)
    He fought for a state that supported slavery.
    He was decapitated by cannonball.
    For over a century, he has been misidentified as Georgia Private E.F. Jennison or Private E.F Jennings killed at Malvern Hill, but these were not his names and he did not serve as a 'Georgia Private.'
    His face has been prominently featured in many Civil War picture books even though he was a common foot soldier.
    His parents erected a monument at Memory Hill Cemetery in Milledgeville, Georgia even though he's buried in an unmarked grave somewhere on the Malvern Hill battlefield in Virginia.
    His was 17 when he died.
    He probably didn't own any slaves.
    His solemn face not only serves as a poignant reminder of doomed boyhood, but of a lost generation.
    He came from a long line of distinguished ancestors of congressmen, doctors, lawyers and Revolutionary War heroes.
    His photograph is one of the most iconic images of the American Civil War.
