In Helena, Arkansas, Confederate Major General Thomas Hindman is dead from gunshot wounds. He was murdered, being shot through the window of his dwelling house as he sat by the fire smoking his pipe. His left hand, in which he was holding the pipe near his face, was torn away, and two balls passed through his neck, severing his windpipe, and other injuries which produced copious internal bleeding….The General survived for about eight hours, in which time he carefully explained all his business to his wife and drew his friends and relatives together so that he could say his good bye….In that public goodbye and in his last minutes, Hindman stated that he forgave anyone that owed him an apology, and that he forgives his assassins for their crime against him….A courageous man, on the battlefield and in his last hours………

Confederate Major General Thomas Carmichael Hindman Jr. (40 Years Old). His murderers will never be discovered.
