The following is an inventory of the estate of Lt. Col. Milton L. Phillips who died of Tuberculosis at the age of 29 Dec. 3, 1863. Milton enrolled in the Union Army in Jacksboro Aug. 1, 1861 and mustered in as Captain of Company B of the First Tennessee Regiment Infantry in Barboursville, Kentucky. He was soon promoted to rank of Lt. Col., and as field officer, he and Col. Robert Byrd were cited for outstanding bravery during the Battle of Murfreesboro (Stone's River) January 1863 in the war report of Gen. James G. Spears. After the war, a G.A.R. Post was established in Jacksboro and named in Milton L. Phillips' honor. The estate administrator, James H. Phillips, was his younger brother and my great granddad (Will & Estate Book C, page 139).
