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.
