Two boys of the same name die at Franklin – Moscow Pitts.

The 39th MS fought at Franklin; French’s Division, Sears brigade. The 39th MS also fought with the 4th, 35th, 36th, 39th, 46th Mississippi; and the 7th Mississippi Battalion.

McGavock records show a Moscow Pitts (probably Moscow T. Pitts) from the 39th MS, Company E, Sears brigade as buried at McGavock [Section 41 Mississippi].

Another Moscow Pitts with the 4th TN, Company K, is listed as buried at McGavock [Section 60 TN]; Strahl’s brigade.

The 4th TN fought with the 5th, 19th, 24th, 31st, 33d, 38th, 41st Tennessee regiments.

How strange is it that two men, both with the same name die at Franklin in 1864; one in a Mississippi regiment and another in a Tennessee?
