Benjamin F. Duggan is listed in the 1860 US Census as a merchant in Unionville, TN, not an M.D. He organized Benjamin F. Duggan Co "A"--men from Bedford Co at Camp Trousdale, TN for the Confederate Army. His company was organized into the 55th (McKoins) TN Infantry Regiment on January 30, 1862 and fought at Shiloh (with very heavy casualties) as a part of BG S.A.M. Wood's Brigade of Hardee's Corps. My Gr-gr-grandfather, from Unionville, was a 1st Lt. in this company.
Would be very interested in information about Capt. Duggan.
