Discovering the Civil War

Yankee and Confederate?

These two service cards show that Private Henry Scott served in both armies. He originally joined the Confederate 10th Louisiana Infantry, where he fought at Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and the Wilderness. He was captured at Spotsylvania in May 1864 and taken to a prisoner-of-war camp at Point Lookout, Maryland. He then took the oath of allegiance for the United States and joined the 1st U.S. Volunteer Infantry. He deserted soon after on August 30, 1864.
