My ggrandfather, James Bailey Looney, was captured at the end of the Civil War by the Union Army in one of the Carolina's and in keeping with the Looney clan's hard headedness and contrariness, refused to sign the Oath of Allegiance and was kept in prison a year after the war. If anyone can help me find where he was held I would be greatly appreciative.
Can you please give us more info. Rank, location, battles in, commanding officers, etc. I Will help if I can.
I thought there was a site where you could enter the name and get all the info. I had it at one time I know I will have to dig around. I appreciate it Sarah.
Try Fort Sully, South Dakota. I know that some men were held there.
Thanks Loretta, I will try
