7/2003 Johnson, Henry:
     Hi,  I have researched the Johnson/Johnston line, and have a correction/clarification for the West Monroe page, which lists Civil War Soldiers.   
    I would like to offer you the facts as the records tell them.  Henry is realy David Henry Johnson/Johnston.  He was in fact enlisted in the 147th N.Y. Regt and was wounded in the battle of Gettysburg on July 1, 1863.  He survived his wounds and returned to duty.  He was captured in the battle of the Wilderness, Virginia on 5 May 1864.  He was a prisoner of war until he was released on 16 Dec 1864.  He was then hospitalized at the U.S. Army Hospital in Annapolas until he died on 29 Dec 1864.  He is buried at the National Cemetery at Annapolis Md.
    Just as a side note, Annapolis is known as the home of the Navy, however during the Civil Wasr it was a U.S. Army Hospital.  The Navy had moved to New Port, Rhode Island during the Civil War.  The web page for West Monroe makes it sound like he was a prisoner at Annapolis, which is not factual.  
Thank you, Harold D. Howe, Email me at: (hhowe1212@aol.com) if there are any questions.
