Major Richard J. Righter--Author of Master's Thesis on the 13th Regiment, Tennessee Volunteer Cavalry

You can read the thesis online.

Richard J. Righter is a GGGG Grandson of Captain Frederick Slimp, and, I am proud to say, a Schlemp/Slimp cousin of mine.

And there's a Slimp historical novelist cousin of the major's and mine up at Berkeley, Gillian Bagwell.

Frederick Slimp himself was a fine storyteller. What stories did his cousin Rachel Slimp Dougherty tell her many children?
