183rd Ohio men who died as POWs, having been captured at Franklin

My last post detailed the 23 men of the 183rd Ohio who were killed or mortally wounded at Franklin.

The 183rd Ohio had 23 men killed or mortally wounded at Franklin. Part of Strickland’s Brigade, the 183rd was a newly formed Regiment and had not seen any action prior to Franklin. The 183rd was on the Carter grounds, just west of the Carter House, when the fighting broke out. Refer to my Google Map to see where the 183rd  was placed at Franklin in relation to other Union regiments.

The following is a list of 183rd men who were captured at Franklin and eventually died as POWs. Since the 183rd only had one man captured at Nashville, all of these men below would had to have been captured at Franklin.
