Re: [civilwarwest] William B. Carter Photo
- I was able to track down copy of Carter at age 49 from the Tennessee State
Library and Archives. BTW, the genealogical research turns Carter up as
having Melungeon ancestry; he also was known as "Black Bill." Since two of
his brothers were Union officers, it's made the research quite revealing
about Tennessee society.
