Wilbur Ridling

Wilber Jacob Ridling, private of Company B of the Sixth Arkansas Infantry (CS). Photo taken from a prewar daguerreotype. Even though he participated in some of the most hard-fought battles of the war (including the battles of Shiloh, Missionary Ridge, Atlanta, Franklin, and Nashville), Ridling was never wounded.
