Wales native Thomas Cheshire, later a saw mill operator from Kentucky, became a scout for the Union army in June 1863. He was captured near Telico Plains, Tennessee that September, and was taken to Atlanta, Richmond, and eventually to Andersonville prison. After several months in horrendous conditions, Cheshire and four other prisoners escaped the prison and made their way to the coast of Florida where they met up with a Federal blockade.
