E. B. Straiter... Civil War Confederate Veteran

I have been going through old newspapers and came across this article. Thinking it may be relevant to someone's family research I am posting it here. There was an old soldiers home and veterans unit in Hot Springs, South Dakota -not far from Alliance which was the point of origin of this article. Alliance was and still is a prominent rail division point for the railroad so many "travelers" ended up going through here in those early years.
