Thanks for all of the information on Mr. Nelson.There are times I think the CSA hated consistency.
That inconsistency (in this case, some might view it as hypocrisy) is what fascinates me about the story. If it is to be believed, Nelson was like many a soldier's personal slave, taken along to ease the master's transition into military service and perform much of the drudgery. Circumstances made him the unit's minister, and perhaps (though debatable) even a rifleman.
