N0. 306 CIW CHAPTER 15 TENNESSEE BLEDSOE’S CONFEDERATE GUERRILLA COMMAND

Commanding officer: Major William (Willis) S. Bledsoe

Bledsoe was possibly Captain or Major of the 25th Tennessee Infantry (S. S. Stanton’s Regiment) Confederate States Army. Bledsoe later joined Ferguson. He was one of the earlier Confederate guerrilla leaders.

Bledsoe was reported killed in March 1864. Some sources claim he was murdered after capture by Union Colonel William B. Stokes’ unit (see Thurman Sensing, Champ Ferguson – Confederate Guerrilla, Nashville: Vanderbilt University Press, 1994, p. 166).
