@east tennessee roots ,

Wow! another great find!
The Polly Washington application is fascinating though a bit vague. If he was a servant for a Dr. on Beauregard's staff his wound would have been received during the May, 1862 Siege of Corinth. Beauregard was not present again in Corinth until December of 1864. There was constant skirmishing and a few engagements during the siege but very few opportunities for anyone, let alone a staff officer's servant, to receive a bayonet wound.
As a side note, I live in the house P.G.T. Beauregard used as his headquarters during the siege.
