22nd Alabama: 1900 Louisville Reunion
22nd Alabama: 1900 Louisville Reunion
Nicholas T. Leverett indicated on his 1913 pension application (Texas Form A) that he was transferred from the 39th (sic) Georgia to the 22nd Alabama in 1863. [He was never with the 39th; he mustered with the 37th.] He probably used two documents to support the assertion he was with the 22nd:

1) A receipt made out to him and originating with Company F, 22nd Regiment Alabama Infantry. It reflected a a remark “for clothing” dated 08 Oct 8 1863, indicating a possible deduction from his gross pay. [That is an odd document since he was wounded less on 21 September while assigned to the 37th Georgia.]

2) A Ramsey hospital discharge dated 09 August 1864 granted him a 60-day furlough. The furlough indicated assignment to the 22nd Alabama. [Most of the soldiers on a corresponding hospital roster were assigned to the 22nd Alabama. All were afforded 60-day furloughs irrespective of wound or illness.]

No document (muster or end-of-war parole) has been located that would validate his claim to having been transferred to the 22nd Alabama. The 37th Georgia records indicate that he failed to be listed on rolls after his slight wounding in September 1863.

2nd Infantry Division (2ID) Omaha Beach: 1944 JUN 07
This classic photo of 2ID soldiers climbing up the slope from Omaha Beach was enlarged and hung on the wall at the WWII Museum in New Orleans, LA. Veeta (Scott) Biggers visited the museum in January 2016 and as she examined the photo, the 2nd soldier in the column drew her attention. She in turn snapped a photo of that soldier to share with her family. While there may be no way to confirm his identification, it sure looks like SSG John Edgar Scott who was with the 702 Ordnance Company, 2ID on that very day!

44th Infantry Division Shoulder Patch
1LT Pope served with the 220th Field Artillery Battalion (105mm), 44th Division.
The Army heraldry notes: The division insignia consists of two blue figure 4's back to back on a golden orange circular background within a blue border. The colors are those of the House of Nassau, whose Dutch settlers inhabited what is now New York and New Jersey, and are used because the division was organized from National Guard units of this region.

It supported both the 37th Infantry Division and the 1st Cavalry Division in the drive south to Manila. In February, 1945, it was attached to the 11th Airborne Division for the mission to capture the Los Banos prisoner camp and release of its civilian internees on Feb. 23, 1945. Moved to Morotai, in June, 1945, the battalion was attached to the 1st Australian Division and one company from the Battalion carried troops ashore in the assault landing at Balikpapan Borneo, landing on Jul. 1, 1945.

"Originally, the red T-O stood for Texas-Oklahoma, since the division was made up almost entirely of men from those two states. Later however, men were drawn from every state in the nation, and the T-O came to represent, by common consent, “Tough ‘Ombres”."

The P-47 was photographed on an airstrip; presumably at Debden, England. It was the aircraft with "Uncle Den" nose art. It was not the aircraft that 1LT Blanchfield flew on his last mission. The 334th Squadron transitioned from P-47C into the P-51 aircraft in May 1944.

A tintype is a photograph made by creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of iron coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion. Tintypes enjoyed their widest use during the 1860s and 1870s, but lesser use of the medium persisted into the early 20th century and it has been revived as a novelty in the 21st.
