Notes:  From Bertha/Della Spriggs  [more stories]

 

"Calvin Carter was born at Burkesville, Kentucky on July 17, 1829 and died on April 23, 1915 at the home of his son Jesse, near Welda, Kansas.  He served in the Civil War, Regiment, 5th Kentucky Calvary.  He went into the army in 1861 and served until the end of the war.  Calvin Carter was my grandfather.  He made his home with my folks when I was a child.  I used to go to his room and visit with him.  He told me how he went off to war leaving my grandmother with their six children down in old Kentucky.  Grandpa Carter fought for the North side when he was in the army.  He was in the Cavalry driving a big team of mules to a chuck wagon of which there were hundreds of.  They had to get food to the foot soldiers in the front lines.  Two men always rode each wagon, with their guns ready as they were sometimes ambushed by the enemy.  There were some men who owned fine horses and they were allowed to keep them and ride all during the war as they needed scouts and messenger boys.  I have heard that they played many tricks on the enemy guards to get by and deliver an important message.  When it was announced that the war was over, Calvin Carter and his wagon buddy unhitched their mules and each climbed on one, and headed for home.  Many of the foot soldiers had to walk.  Their shoes were already worn out and their clothes in tatters.  They had very little money so they stole from the farmers what they needed or wanted.  These men were called bushwhackers.  Calvin Carter had a nice horse which he was leading behind his wagon.  The bushwhackers slipped up from behind and cut the lead rope and stole his horse."
