Mentioned by Benjamin F. McPherson (Co. I) in his memoir recalling his journey home from the Confederate surrender in NC in May 1865:

"... My friends, I must tell you how near naked I was. I had been away from my Command so long and my pants all down the legs was in strips and all ripped open, and let me tell you there were wagon loads in the supply train, but because I was among strangers (as a teamster) I could not draw any clothing. It was hard, but I had to bear it. I felt cowed, so I told the other boys if they would wait a day on me I would have me a pair made if I could get a lady to make them, for I could not travel that way. They said they would, so they asked me what I would make them out of. I said ’Out of my blanket.’ My good wife had made me one at home, a black one, and a heavy one. It was not jet black. I asked Mr. Thomas, for he was my mess mate, to go with me, so he did, and we took in Charlotte (SC), all of the suburbs, and we found a refugee lady that said she would make them... Walter Thomas and I went back and made our report to the rest of the boys... I got into a good shade and consoled myself when I get on my new pants I can pass the dear sweet ladies without blushing... At the stated time I asked my friend, Walter, to accompany me now after my new pants, and when we arrived at the place the good lady said she had them done, all but sewing on the buttons... We bid her adieu and tipped our hats to her, so back we started, and on the side of the railroad were many cars sidetracked from all over the Confederacy, so I said to Walter, ’Let us go into one of those cars, and I will put on my new pants,, so we did... Walter and I went to the commissary and drew rations, and this was still in the hands of the Confederates... Walter Thomas and I belonged to the same company. He was a young man, maybe 21 or 22 years of age (in 1865). He was a good moral young man and we stuck together all the trip. We went into the suburbs of the town to hunt some cook to bake us a lot of biscuit... We found an old negro woman who said that she would do our cooking... Walter and I spread his blanket on the ground and covered with the sky, and went to sleep to dream of home, sweet home... Walter Thomas and I went to the commissary and drew our last rations from the Yanks. This being the 15th day of May, 1865, we were expected to get home tonight... we arrived at LaGrange, Troup County, Ga. There I bid my friend soldier farewell and I got off. Walter had to go to Cusseta, Ala. We lived some 30 miles apart. I never met him since, but peace be with him is my prayer...";
