That's him, no doubt about it! He must have been hospitalized immediately upon his arrival, since records indicate he was transferred from Ft. McHenry to Ft. Delaware either June 15 or 19. I wonder if he was transferred on the 15th to the hospital, then to the regular prison population on the 19th, thus explaining how both dates could be correct, in a sense.
And his claim to be a 2nd Lieut in the 15th Va. Cav. adds a new alias, since he usually claimed to be either a captain in that company or a lieutenant in the 12th Virginia. He was slightly insane, and so far I've got him identified to six different military positions, none of which he actually held, as far as I can tell. He was really an interesting guy.
Is there any more information on his hospitalization in June 16-18, 1864, like what he was treated for?
