bonus:
Captain Theodrick “Tod” Carter …
Mortally wounded Nov. 30th 1864 Just 525 feet from his home, his horse went down and a volley of nine bullets fell the young captain. He died Dec. 2nd 1864 in the home he was born in.

Horse - Rosencrantz He mounted him some of last words where "Follow me Boys I'm almost home"!!

Sign - "Tennessee a Grave or Free Home" Was a sign that Gen. Cheatham's men saw as they crossed into Tennessee (November 22, 1864) BTW - Rev. C.D. Elliott had a sign made and put up.

My answer for the photograph is John H. Hobart who served on Longstreet's staff as A.A.G. until his wounding on May 6, 1864 at the Wilderness?
My answers for the Bonus Questions are as follows: The answer for the first part is: Captain Theodrick Tod Carter. His horse's name was Rosencrantz. The third answer is: "Tennessee-A Free home or grave."
David.

Answer
Theodrick Carter
was the soldier, but known to all as “Tod”,
within 2 days, he’d be dead, and now rests under the sod.
On that day, a brave soldier, as with his men he leads,
on his horse Rosencrantz, his most beloved steed.
He had a date with destiny in Franklin, Tennessee,
never knowing he’d be home when he’d faced his enemy.
A bullet there to stop him, no more longer does he roam,
the sign they saw: “Tennessee, A Grave or A Free Home”.
