    • Lewis Walter was in the Confederate Army as well as the Union Navy. It seems that he was captured as a Confederate Soldier, went to a prisoner of war camp near Chicago, Illinois, and there joined the Union Navy. Some of the papers show that he did not serve in the Confederate Army voluntarily; but that might have been because it had to do with getting a pension from the Federal Government.
