Morris, Nathan Ewing
NATHAN E. MORRIS.
Nathan Ewing Morris, born August 17, 1839, died January 25, 1922. He enlisted on May 28, 1861, in Company H, 20th Tennessee Infantry, and was in every engagement of the regiment from Fishing Creek, in January, 1862, to Nashville, in December, 1864. At Chickamauga he was made a litter bearer for the regiment, and from then to the last no firing was too heavy or the enemy too near to keep him from rescuing the wounded. There was not in the army a cooler, braver, or more loyal soldier. At Nashville he was present when Col. W. H. Shy was killed and the cowardly assault made on Gen. Thomas Benton Smith, and every member of his company was killed, wounded, or captured. He made his escape during the confusion.
After the war comrade Morris married Miss Milly Ann Ivy, who, with one daughter and four sons, survives him. He was a life-long member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, a true Christian, a perfect gentleman, and a model citizen.
