    BIOGRAPHY:
    From "Echoes of Battle The Atlanta Campaign: An illustrated collection of Union and Confederate narratives" page 116

    One of the boys of our compay, Christain J. Sensenbaugh, was killed near their works, and after the rebels had left three of us went up to find him if we could. He had been slightly wounded at Chickamauga, pretty severely wounded at Mission Ridge by a peice of shell striking him on the top of the head, and he would often say that if hit a third time it would kill him.

    We went to the trees that we took shelter behind during the fight, locating the tree he stood behind when shot, and near it found a grave. We did not know if it was his body. One of the boys who had a spade dug down until he came to his head, but we still could not tell whether it was he or not. One of my companions asked if we remembered the scar on his head. We did, and his head was raised high enough and we could see the scar of the scond wound. In that way we identified him.

    We left a piece of cracker-box board as his headboard with his name cut on it. His remains afterward were taken up and placed in the cemetery at Chattanooga.
