    James R. Burress Shot as Deserter
    This story was in the 25 March 1865 addition of the Abingdon Virginian newspaper, it caught my eye because of the story another researcher told of James R. Burress being shot. I do not know if this is the same James R. Burress, this took place in Giles County.
