Nathan B. Lusk was my great great grandfather on my mother`s side.I believe you conversed with her briefly.Mary.Nathan Lusk enlisted in Confederate army in South Carolina.He enlisted as a private in the 12th Southn Carolina volunteer infantry.He was promoted to Lieutenant and taken prisoner at the battle of the wilderness in Va.He was a prisoner at fort Delaware,where he and other Confederate officers were taken out and used as human shields for federal artillery that was shelling Charleston( I think).These confederate officers(600 of them) never succumbed to torture or starvation and remained loyal to the Confederacy thru_out all hardships.They were deemed heroes by Southern people,and came to be referred to as The Immortal 600. If you have birth and death dates for Nathan Lusk,please e-mail me same.
