I've added links to this profile in the profile of 2d Lt. Alonzo Chubb. Chubb was one of three men held as hostage at Buckner's orders in response to the Union taking 3 civilian POWs. Holding officers for civilians was not standard protocol and was considered highly unusual.

Check out the Civil War section of Alonzo's bio.
