During the Yankee occupation of 1865, the soldiers had very little food. The following story appeared in the East Lauderdale News on Octomber 27,1988: On the first day of General Hatch's arrival at Waterloo in early January.. Some 200 of his men under the command of a Lieuteant camped at the home of Phillip Lindsey. Lindsey's 120 acre farm was four miles from Waterloo, and three miles from Hatch's headquarters. The Lieuteant slept in the house that night with the family. The next morning as they were leaving they took about everything in the way of food that they could find. Phillip Lindsey filed a claim against the Federal Government in 1876 listing the following items and their value:
5100# of salted pork from smokehouse------$667.00
50 Bu. of corn from crib at the house---- $ 50.00
500 bundles of fodder from barn---------- $ 15.00
3 stands of beehives--------------------- $ 50.00
100# of honey---------------------------- $ 20.00
40 gals. of mollasses taken away in utensils- $ 40.00
50# of potatoes dug from garden by soldiers- $ 25.00
1000# of cotton seed (burned at site)------- $300.00
1000 newly cut fence rails burned at site)--- $ 30.00
slaughtered a milkcow and 2 heifers
slaughters all hogs on place
Later that same day other soldiers overtook Lindsey's son, John, on his way to the mill at Brush Creek and confisticated a claybank mare worth $200.00.
Lindsey was refused time and again as he had three sons in the Confederate Army and owned slaves. He never gave up, however. Each time the courts turned him down he would file again, and as late as 1891 he was resubmitting his claim.
The Baptist Churches at Gravely Springs and Waterloo were torn down and the lumber used in the construction of barracks and stables. In fact, hardly a barn or out building was left standing for miles around. Files on record in Washington reveal that a large number of familes at the Waterloo and Gravely Springs area filed claims after the war. Some of these were: Ann Carr, James Johnson, John Higgins, Calvin Higgins, James Bevis and John Perryman. A hundred years later these files are restricted and almost unaccessible to the general public.. Very few claims of this nature were honored. In 1912 the United States made some settlements of claims dating from the Civil War. Two claims from Lauderdale County were among those settled in January 1912. Gravely Springs Baptist church received $725.00 and the Waterloo Missionary church $615.56.
