Hinds, Charles Barritt   Co. B, 21st IA Vol Luana Died 05/14/1863 at Grand Gulf, Mississippi. Although (in part) the inscription on his parents' gravestone states he "died on the field of battle", he died when his body wasted away from chronic diarrhea. His name on a monument in the Luana cemetery is likely a cenotaph. His parent's died in 1877 which is probably when the monument was erected with Charles' name being added in his memory. Researchers should verify if his body was indeed returned home for burial. ~from Carl Ingwalson. Additional info. Gravestone in the Luana cemetery
