    Notes 
    • Andersonville Prison... Robert dug a hole in the sandy floor for Henry Nobes of Frankfort, Indiana. He had learned that Henry's leg was untreated in any way and took off his underwear. Robert tore his underwear to bind the man's leg, packed it in the dirt, and fed him his own handful of corn. Henry Nobes grew demanding of the two handfuls of corn and Robert let him have them while he starved to death.

      Robert Nobes went to the home of Robert's parents, Henry Innes and Sarah Whitham Bennett every May 26th, as long as they lived to spend the day with them. The Civil War had ended on May 26, 1865....
