Wayne. I have Major Pitner's sword and the quilt Melinda Russell Pitner made while he was away fighting the war. An interesting note. He was captured at Vicksburg and had to sign an oath the he would never take up arms against the United States. First thing he did when he got back home was to start his own regiment!
