Sgt. Joshua G Bailey served with Gantt's 9th Tn Cav from Maury Co and returned after the war to Maury county. Upon return he and others became members of the United Confederate Veterans organization in the 1880's. His name appears on the membership application of Samuel r. Watkins who wrote the book entitled "Co. Aytch" which was written from the outlook of a private in the Confederacy. Today the Sons of confederate Veterans organization in Columbia is named in honor of Watkins. Joshua G. Bailey is my second cousin removed by two generations. Anyone having more info on Watkins and Bailey membership in he UCV please contact me. Talley Bailey
