Company D
Michael Click
- Corporal
We have never verified what happened to the body of Michael, but think he was buried in the mass grave at Fort Pillow where he was believed to have been killed during the battle (massacre)at that location. These bodies were later exhumed and placed in a memorial graveyard close by. I found no record of him at the Andersonville prison camp that the survivors were taken to.
