Original 1865 Civil War document (10\" x 21\") showing an allotment of $10 to Prentiss Thompson, a farmer from Maine who was involved in the seizure of Fort Morgan and Spanish Fort, Alabama. Private Thompson had also engaged in the Skirmish at Franklin Creek, Mississippi, often later referred to as the Battle at Franklin Creek.
Franklin Creek begins at Grand Bay, Alabama and then runs along what is now Hwy 90. At the Mississippi state line it runs north and eventually empties into the Escawtapa River. The following is the only reliable information I could discover regarding the \"Skirmish at Franklin Creek\".
On December 15, 1864, 3000 Union troops landed at East Pascagoula and began to march to Mobile. Their advance stopped at Franklin Creek, about 12 miles from East Pascagoula, without encountering any opposition. The Union soldiers then began stripping sawmills but did not make any aggressive moves against the railroads in the area or proceeding further towards Mobile. On December 26 the Federals retreated because of a lack of supplies.
