    Manuscript Endorsement "James C. Bridgewater" T41 $100 1862 PF-22 Cr. 320A PMG Very Fine 20.
    Major Bridgewater is one of the very few who used the term, "disbursed" instead of "issued." The endorsement on this $100 states, "Disbursed / By J.C. Bridgewater / A(ssistant) C(ommissary) (of) S(ubsistence) / 1st Cavalry Brigade / Febry 15th 1863." Bridgewater served with the 30th Tennessee Regiment. He was able to escape Fort Donelson when it fell to Union forces on February 16, 1862. After a long bout with Confederate red tape, Bridgewater was able to regain his commission in September, 1862. It is known that he was in camp near Shelbyville, Tennessee with the First Cavalry Brigade, General Joseph Wheeler's Division during March, 1863. He died on July 4, 1864. Bridgewater is not found in the Fricke 2014 reference, but he does appear in McNeil's quartermaster reference.
