Chaplain I. T. Tichenor, 17th Alabama Infantry. Though a Chaplain, he carried a Colt Revolving rifle at Shiloh, and used it. His records with the Alabama Civil War Soldiers database state that he "Distinguished himself at Shiloh for gallantry. Killed one Colonel, a Captain and four privates with his fine rifle." Tichenor wrote of his Shiloh experiences for his family; the attached is a portion of what he wrote. He plundered through the chest belonging to Col. Benjamin Allen of the 16th Wisconsin Infantry, finding $20 in gold in Allen's belongings. Tichenor witnessed the wounding and capture of Lt. Col. William Swarthout of the 50th Illinois Infantry.
