There is someevidence that not only was he the last Union soldier, but also the last Civil War soldier. William Marvel,the noted civil war author and historian, in 1991 had an article in the Blue and Gray magazine that showed all the men who claimed to have been CSA soldiers that died after Woolson died in 1956 were fakers who aged suddenly after the southern states started giving out pensions. He found this out by using computer to compare census records over the years.NBC nightly news of 12 Jun 2004 said the last CSA soldier died in 1951 who would bePvt P. R. Crump of the 10th AL Inf , which is what Mr. Marvel claims.History Detectives of 26 Jun 2006 on PBS says that Pvt. Crump was the last CSA soldier. Now try to get the VA,the official source of saying who the last Civil war soldier was, admit that they have been wrong for years.If this is all true then Pvt. Woolson's statue in Duluth and at Gettysburg needs to have the inscription changed to read also last Civil War soldier.
