General Grant's Bodyguard at Savannah 

It has been discovered that Major General Grant had, acting as his bodyguard at Savannah, a detachment of cavalry under command of Captain Ned Osband, from Dickey's 4th Illinois Cavalry. Including Captain Osband, this detachment was likely six or eight men (and if any of these made the Sunday morning voyage aboard Tigress with General Grant, they likely took their horses along.)
